Entry requirements to Japan

The Japanese authorities have introduced requirements for customers arriving in the country.

Please note that entry restrictions may be subject to change on short notice. You are responsible for ensuring that you are allowed entry into the country they are travelling from, to or are in transit through.

Citizens of Japan are allowed to enter Japan.

Residents of Japan who have left Japan before 31 August 2020 with a re-entry permit are allowed to enter Japan, provided they hold the following:

  • a Letter of Confirmation of having submitted the required documentation for re-entry into Japan
  • a medical certificate with a negative coronavirus test result (by nasopharyngeal swab or saliva test) taken earliest 72 hours before the flight.   

Residents of Japan who have left Japan on or after 1 September 2020 with a re-entry permit must hold the following; 

  • a receipt that they have requested re-entry (issued by the Japanese immigration upon exiting Japan) 
  • a medical certificate with a negative coronavirus test result (by nasopharyngeal swab or saliva test) taken earliest 72 hours before the flight.  

Holders of valid Japanese visas, issued at an embassy or consulate abroad after 1 September, are allowed entry to Japan, provided they hold the following: 

  • a medical certificate with a negative coronavirus test result (by nasopharyngeal swab or saliva test) taken earliest 72 hours before the flight.  
  • You must show the medical certificate to the airline agent before being accepted on the flight. 

All visa-waiver exemptions are currently suspended. Passengers are subject to coronavirus test on arrival.

After arriving to Japan, you will be requested to stay at a location designated by the Quarantine Station Chief for 14 days, again at your own expense, and to refrain from using public transportation. Japanese nationals and residents may self-quarantine at home. 

Transiting through Japan

Passengers transiting through Tokyo (NRT) must transit on the same calendar day.

Latest entry restrictions can be found via the IATA website and appropriate consulate or embassy.
