Opening borders to the limited Japan’s foreign residents from August 5th, 2020

From August 5th, 2020,  those who left Japan with re-entry permission (included special re-entry) before their destination countries were designated as an area subject to denial will be able to apply to return to Japan.  Those eligible will have to obtain a “re-entry confirmation letter” from the nearest Japanese Embassy or diplomatic agency.

Submitting evidence of a negative corona virus test conducted within 72 hours of their flight is also required.

Please contact with your local Japanese Embassy for more details.
