COVID-19: Current Japanese Border Measures

Temporary measures are currently being applied to those who are entering Japan from China. After 00:00 JST on January 12th, 2023, all those who are entering Japan via a direct flight from China (including Macau, excluding Hong Kong) are required to obtain a certificate of Pre-departure Test.

Please pre-register the information required for quarantine procedures via “Visit Japan Web”. We request that all travelers use “Visit Japan Web” which can be accessed from the link below, as it will take an extended period of time to confirm documents for those who do not use it.
