In response to the spread of the mutated variants of the novel coronavirus, the Japanese government is continuing to strengthen border controls for passengers entering Japan.
As a result, many of these newly introduced measures have made entry into Japan more complicated than before. ANA have therefore summarized the necessary travel documentation and requirements to gain entry into Japan.
ANA kindly asks all of our passengers to utilize the checklist below to ensure all required documentation is prepared prior to travel.
Please be aware that there have been many instances where travelers have been rejected entry into Japan due to insufficient written certification of a negative COVID-19 test.
As per the instructions of the Japanese government, ANA reserves the right to deny boarding to any passenger who is not able to provide valid certification of a negative COVID-19 test upon check-in.
Passengers are strongly recommended to prepare all written certification in alignment with the prescribed format provided by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare of Japan.
* Passengers providing evidence which does not properly specify the type of specimen tested, method of inspection, and/or the time and date of the inspection. (There have been several instances where the lack of required information indicated by medical institutions have led to passengers being denied boarding.)
* Passenger is not in possession of valid visa
