Limits on the number of people entering Japan have been lifted, and the ban on individual international tourists entering Japan has been lifted. Entry restrictions are now almost back to what they were before the COVID-19 pandemic began.
The limit of entries to 50,000 people per day was lifted, and the ban on individual overseas tourists other than those on group tours was lifted for the first time in approximately two and a half years.
In addition to the resumption of visa exemptions for short-term visitors from 68 countries and regions, including the U.S., South Korea, and the U.K., international flights are expected to be accepted at regional airports and ports in order.
Travelers to Japan will no longer be required to undergo quarantine inspection when entering Japan unless they have symptoms of suspected infection, such as a fever, and will not be required to stay in quarantine after arriving in Japan.
However, they will still be required to show proof of three vaccinations or a negative test result within 72 hours prior to departure from the origin country.
