Frequently asked questions

When will Japan lift its travel ban and reopen for tourists?
No one knows yet. Japan just further extended the entry ban until the end of February. Business people and students will likely be allowed in before tourists.
Can I go to Japan?
Not likely. Travel for tourism is still not permitted, and there is no indication that this will change in the short term. On November 29, Japan announced that, due to the Omicron variant, all foreign visitors are banned from entering Japan. This includes business people and students.
Who can go to Japan now?
Japanese citizens and foreign residents with a reentry permit are generally allowed to reenter Japan but must comply with strict pre- and post- travel testing requirements and quarantine upon arrival.
When is the next update from the Japanese government?
A decision on whether to maintain the closure is expected sometime within the next week, in mid-January 2022.
I thought Japan eased restrictions?
That lasted for only a few weeks, and Japan never reopened for tourists.
