Border measures and new measures upon entry into Japan
Effective January 9, 2021 until the declaration of a state of emergency in Japan is lifted, all travelers who enter Japan from overseas will be subject to inspections at the time of entry.
From January 13, 2021, all foreign nationals (regardless of nationality) who enter Japan from all countries and regions are required to present an "Inspection Certificate of COVID-19 test" issued within 72 hours before departure.
Temporary Suspension of Entry to Japan from All Countries and Territories
As of October 1, 2020, entry to Japan has been permitted as a general rule from all countries and territories on the condition that the host company or organization is implementing measures to prevent COVID-19 infection.
However, new entry to Japan under this system will be denied from all countries and territories between December 28, 2020 and the end of January 2021. As a general rule, holders of visas issued under the above system are allowed to enter Japan, excluding cases where non-Japanese nationals are entering Japan after having visited a country or territory at Infectious Disease Risk Information Level 3 or above within the 14 days prior to the date of application for landing in Japan.
