The Current Situation in Tokyo

18 Feb 2022 NEWS

As the quasi-state of emergency continues in Tokyo amid the omicron wave, the government has announced an ease in border restrictions.

From March 1, new entries of foreign nationals such as business travelers, students, and other non-tourists will resume. The cap on daily entries will be raised from 3,500 to 5,000 and the quarantine period for those who have been fully vaccinated including a booster shot will be reduced from 7 days to 3 days. Foreign nationals from certain countries with low covid rates may be able to forgo quarantine entirely upon entry.

We will continue to post updates as the restrictions are eased further.
