Japan plans for gradual reopening of borders

 Tuesday, October 5, 2021 


Following other countries across the globe, Japan has slowly started to reopen its borders to welcome back visitors. However, the country has also declared several conditions for entry.

Foreign travelers need to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and produce proof of Pfizer, Moderna or AstraZeneca vaccines, since they are currently the only ones accepted in Japan.

Japan does not accept China’s Sinopharm or the single dose Johnson & Johnson shot made in the United States’ Johnson & Johnson.

While visitors no longer have to quarantine for 14 days, they must quarantine for 10. After 10 days, travelers must take a PCR test. If the test is negative, the person is then able to move freely in the country.

Argentina also announced that it will reopen to international tourism on November 1. All foreign visitors will be welcome to for a quarantine-free visit, as long as they have received the approved vaccines at least two weeks earlier and also present a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours before their arrival in the country.

Visitors from neighboring countries were allowed to enter Argentina on October 1.

Earlier this week, Australia announced reopening its borders to travelers too.
