Japan strict Entry Rules

Japan Will Continue Strict Entry Rules Through February

The Government of Japan has announced that strict border restrictions barring most foreign nationals from entering the country will continue until at least late February. The restrictions include travelers from the U.S.

All travelers from the United States must comply with a mandatory three-day or six-day quarantine at government of Japan-designated facilities. The length of the quarantine period varies depending on travelers’ location of origin.

The rules related to quarantine requirements change often and with little notice. So the U.S. Embassy and Consulates in Japan are alerting travelers to monitor local news resources, as well as the websites of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Justice, and Ministry of Health, Labour, and Welfare.

Travelers who test positive for COVID-19 must comply with government of Japan regulations regarding the necessary quarantine period and testing prior to release from quarantine. The U.S. Embassy notes that it is unable to intervene in these matters.

Travelers should also be aware of longer processing times at airports. Enhanced screening measures related to Omicron mean extended wait times upon arrival. Japan is warning travelers that there are limited options during customs and immigration for food and drinks and are advising travelers to have medications and nonperishable food items with them.

Families also should be aware that they could be separated if hotels rooms are not large enough to accommodate a big group. The government is advising those going to Japan to pack each person’s luggage individually in case that happens.

Also, while food will be provided at government of Japan-designated hotels, specific requests based on dietary restrictions may not be accommodated.

  1. am i reading this wrong? i find this article is extremely confusing…

    “The Government of Japan has announced that strict border restrictions barring most foreign nationals from entering the country will continue until at least late February. The restrictions include travelers from the U.S.” …ok, so people from the US are barred from going to Japan

    “All travelers from the United States must comply with a mandatory three-day or six-day quarantine at government of Japan-designated facilities. The length of the quarantine period varies depending on travelers’ location of origin.” …ok, so maybe we can go and worst case scenario have to quarantine at a govt facility for 6 days???

    “Travelers who test positive for COVID-19 must comply with government of Japan regulations regarding the necessary quarantine period and testing prior to release from quarantine.” …ok, so ppl from the US can go and we’re required to quarantine whether we test positive or negative??

    …and the first comment says that Klint had no problems when transiting! sooo..i can go?…or maybe i can’t???

    • There isn’t any restrictions that I’m aware of. Matthew Klint over at Live and let’s fly went with no issue in November so you should be good. The requirement is just whatever test you need for your onward destination and then you must remain in the sterile area and you can’t transfer between NRT and HND.
