Foreign residents were left scratching their heads and wondering whether the country was expanding its most rigorous travel bans after the government announced fresh travel restrictions on seven countries late Wednesday.

The Foreign Ministry and immigration officials announced that Japan will place travel restrictions on travelers from Thailand and six other countries following an emergency ministerial meeting Wednesday, but details about the changes didn’t appear on the Foreign or Justice ministries’ website until Thursday afternoon.

The travel restrictions were revised just a day after Japan decided to ban entry of all foreign nationals from several countries, even if they have a valid residency status. The day before, Sri Lanka was added to the list of countries covered by the nation’s more stringent quarantine protocols.
