Japan announces end to pre-departure COVID test for vaccinated travellers


Recommended Posts

Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida announced Wednesday that as of September 7th, passengers bound for Japan will no longer need to present evidence of a negative PCR test within 72 hours of departure. 

Mr. Kishida, who himself tested positive for the virus days earlier, expressed the need to keep social and economic activity moving forward while carefully monitoring the situation. 

Currently, all arrivals flying from Thailand - both Japanese and non-Japanese - have been required to submit a certificate customized for Japanese requirements and available at a limited number of medical facilities for 2000-3000 baht.
