Visit Japan QR Codes: Ensure easy-access at the airport

The Japanese Government has set up Visit Japan Web, an online portal for you to load up your required COVID-19 Documentation, and fill out all of your Immigration and Customs information in advance.

Once completed, this will allow you to use Fast Track (expedited travel lanes through Japanese airports).

We strongly recommend setting up a Japan Web account and registering all of your information before you fly, as this will save you time when you arrive in Japan.
