To lessen congestion at airports during the busy Golden Week holiday period, the government is lifting all border control measures related to COVID-19 earlier than planned.
Initially, the government had planned to end these measures on Monday 8 May, the same day that coronavirus will be downgraded to the status of common infectious diseases like the seasonal flu. However, this will now happen nationwide on Saturday 29 April - Just in time for the Golden Week holiday period.
As of Saturday, all international arrivals will no longer need to show proof of vaccination or a negative test result taken within 72 hours of departure.
This decision is a significant step towards the full resumption of international travel, and it is sure to have a positive impact on Japan's tourism industry.
So, pack your bags and get ready for a stress-free start or end to your holiday in Japan.
