To Anyone Entering/Returning to Japan

As part of border measures to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19),
enhanced quarantine procedures are in place for entry to Japan.
Please use Fast Track for quarantine procedures to enter Japan.
Quarantine measures will depend on where you stayed before entering Japan and whether or not you have received a third vaccine dose. Therefore, please check which measures apply to you. ​ ​​

If you stayed in more than one country, please confirm the status for each one.
If results differ, they will apply in this order: (1) quarantine at a facility arranged by quarantine officials, (2) quarantine at home/accommodations, (3) no quarantine.


(Example: If you recently stayed more than one country and your results "quarantine at a facility arranged by quarantine officials” and “no quarantine,” the former will apply.)
