COVID-19: Japan to reopen to international visitors from 1 March 2022
Unfortunately, tourists will need to wait. Japan is only opening for business travellers and students NOT tourists who have been triple vaccinated and test negative within 72 hours of arrival.
If you’re coming from a country where COVID-19 is under control, then you will only need to quarantine for 3 days.
However, arrivals are still capped but will rise from 3,500 to 5,000 per day
Once the borders do open, and certainly when they start accepting tourists, expect Qantas to fly to Haneda Airport, Tokyo from Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney. They will be joined by JAL and ANA operating direct flights
Once the Japanese border opens, Qantas, JAL and ANA are ready for takeoff.
I love digital, except when my phone dies, which happened to me on the last night of my recent visit to New Zealand
Unfortunately, international travellers will miss Sakura (Cherry Blossom) season for 2022, but Japan is worth visiting at any time.
