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.

The following entry requirements apply: 

  • You are required to fill an electronic quarantine questionnaire and present a QR code at your departure gate and to the authorities upon arrival. Only if an electronic device for presenting a QR code is not available, the authorities will accept a paper form. Please fill the online quarantine questionnaire here.

Effective 24 December 2020 – 31 January 2021  

Foreign nationals who have been in the UK in the past 14 days are not allowed to enter Japan. 

  • Japanese nationals and residents (valid re-entry permit holders) who have visited the UK, are allowed to enter Japan but are required to have a certificate of a negative coronavirus PCR test result taken earliest 72 hours before the departure time of the flight to Japan. 

Effective 26 December 2020 – 31 January 2021

Effective 30 December 2020 – 31 January 2021

  • Japanese nationals and residents (re-entry permit holders) are recommended to take a test prior to travel but can still be accepted for travel without a negative coronavirus test result taken prior to travel (if they travel from Helsinki before 4 January 2021). You will in such a case be subject to a test on arrival and a 14-day quarantine at a facility assigned by the authorities.
