Japan Turns Mexicans Away Due to Swine Flu

Japan said Tuesday it would no longer allow Mexican travelers to obtain a visa upon arrival.

Health officers at three Japanese airports also were being deployed Tuesday to check passengers before they disembarked from flights coming from Mexico, Canada and the United States. Travelers suspected of having swine flu would be quarantined and examined further at medical facilities, news agencies reported, citing the Japanese health minister.
