Japan COVID-19 Travel Ban

Due to the coronavirus, tourists will be denied entry into Japan.

  • Currently, tourists can only enter Japan as part of a packaged tour from a registered travel agency, but you must apply in advance.
  • All travelers must have proof of a negative PCR test taken 72 hours prior to departure (current Covid-19 restrictions).
  • Relatives of Japanese nationals and foreign permanent and long-term residents can enter Japan via an application (PDF).
