Covid-19 Quarantine
May be required for passengers showing symptoms who test positive on arrival

Quarantine requirement at government designated site or self-isolation at designated location- subject to category.

From 1 June, Japan will introduce a red, yellow and blue ‘traffic light’ system and the test on arrival will no longer be required for travellers on the ‘blue list’.

Quarantine and other requirements may vary. Further details can be found in the section on vaccination status below, in the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare Q&A and on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website. *If you are identified as a close contact of someone who tests positive on arrival, you will be required to quarantine or self-isolate for 7 days. From 1 June, you will not be required either to take a test on arrival or to self-isolate.

* If you’re not fully vaccinated, travellers who arrive from the UK before 31 May will be required to spend 3 full days after the day of arrival in self-isolation in your place of residence or accommodation. You will need to take a COVID-19 test on Day 3 (the day of arrival counts as Day 0). If the test is negative, you will be permitted to end self-isolation.


Quarantine requirement at government designated site or self-isolation at designated location- subject to category.

Travellers coming from the UK or this list of countries (see ‘Note 1’ under part 2 of sub-heading ‘2. Quarantine Measures’) are requested to spend 3 days in self-isolation at a government-provided facility, with a further COVID-19 test on the third day. If the test is negative they will be allowed to continue 14 days’ self-isolation as set out below.

All passengers arriving in Japan from this list of countries, as well as those countries which were part of individual Business and Residence Tracks until recently, are required to sign a pledge confirming that they will self-isolate for 14 days on arrival at a designated location (such as a hotel or their own home). This pledge will also ask individuals to refrain from using public transport; install Japan’s COVID-19 tracing app; maintain location data for 14 days via their smartphone mapping application; and agree to disclose location data if requested by the quarantine authority.
