Japan considering ending pre-arrival test requirement

Japan’s government is considering ending the pre-arrival COVID-19 testing requirement for inbound travellers who are vaccinated, Nikkei Asia has learned.

The current border controls require travellers to show proof of a negative test result from within 72 hours of departure. As some countries curtail their testing capabilities, obtaining the necessary documents has become more difficult.

A decision will be made soon, taking the country’s case count into consideration. The easing is likely to take effect within a few weeks.

The government also will consider raising the daily cap on people arriving in Japan from the current 20,000. (Source: Nikkei Asia)
