Following the latest announcement by the Australian Government on June 10, Australia’s human biosecurity emergency period will now be extended for a further three months. The emergency period, which has been in place since 18 March 2020 to protect Australians during the COVID-19 pandemic, will continue until 17 September 2021.

For more information refer to the Smartraveller Coronavirus (COVID-19) – information for Australian travellers page.

Japan recently revised its entry rules and currently all foreign nationals (unless they have residency status in Japan or fall under the category of special exceptional circumstances) are banned from entering Japan for any purpose. Since March 19, 2021, all persons entering Japan must provide a certificate of a negative PCR test result taken within 72 hours prior to departure. Upon arrival in Japan, a further PCR test is required and all persons must self-isolate at home and refrain from using public transport for 14 days. For further information see the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan’s website.

We understand the current situation is causing uncertainty and request you to contact Japan Holidays to discuss your options regarding cancellation, rebooking or retaining the value of your travel in credit.

Please refer to Fully Escorted Tours and other Tour itineraries for set departures.
