What are the latest entry restrictions?
Currently, travellers and tourists from 152 countries and regions are being denied entry into Japan.
From December 28 2020 to the end of January 2021, Japan is banning all international travellers from entering the country – excluding Japanese citizens and foreign residents with re-entry permits. You still must provide official proof of a negative coronavirus test (taken 72 hours before departure) and must currently hold residency in Japan. From December 28 2020 to the end of January 2021, Japan is no longer issuing new visas.
Those who stayed in the United Kingdom or South Africa within 14 days prior to their arrival in Japan are now required to submit a new pledge.
