Singapore will lift its border restrictions for visitors from the Chinese mainland and Australia's Victoria state, starting from November 6.

Japan will lift its entry ban on foreign travelers from China, South Korea and six other countries as well as China's Taiwan region from November for non-tourist arrivals, officials said on Friday.
