INFORMATION REGARDING UPDATED TRAVEL ADVICE
Fully vaccinated Australians and permanent residents are now able to travel internationally. The Department of Home Affairs website has information on how to prepare for travel abroad.
The SmartTraveller website covers the visa, vaccination and testing requirements for each destination including Japan.
Japan is currently closed to all international tourists unless they have a special exemption, but an announcement on 6th May suggests that Japan is looking at re-opening to tourists from June 2022.
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 from March 1st 2022, fully vaccinated (3 doses) arrivals from Australia no longer have to quarantine or self-isolate.
For further information see the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan’s website.
If you have a travel credit with Japan Holidays, please call us to discuss how we can rebook your travel to Japan.
We are taking bookings for all our Fully Escorted Tours in 2022 and all deposits remain fully refundable if you are unable to travel to Japan due to border closures.
