Individual travelers from India can now enter Japan


The government of Japan has announced a policy of resuming entry of individual travelers for tourism purposes from October 11. The government released its policy to resume group tours to Japan on September 7 and has now lifted entry restrictions for individual tourists entering Japan.

A COVID-19 test on arrival is no longer necessary once you arrive in Japan. However, to participate, you must still meet one of the following two conditions:

  1. Obtain a certificate confirming that you have received at least three injections of a vaccine recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO). The document must be issued by an official body, such as a government agency, and must be accompanied by a Japanese or English translation if it was originally written in another language.
  2. Obtain a certificate confirming the negative status of a COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of departure to Japan from your home country.

In either case, travelers must fill out a COVID-19 questionnaire before arrival, which the government recommends that they complete online in advance using their “Fast Track” service – which is available in Japanese, English, Chinese , Vietnamese and Indonesian – and an associated application called MySOS, which you can install on your smartphone via a QR code or a link.
