However, until the declaration of the state of emergency is lifted, Japanese returnees will be required to submit proof of a negative COVID-19 test conducted within 72 hours of departure time, regardless of whether Japanese returnees are traveling from a country or region subject to denial of entry, or whether Japanese returnees are using a business or residence truck.
Japanese returnees will be tested again when returning to Japan, and will be required to wait at home for 14 days.
It is also required that Japanese returnees do not use public transportation for 14 days after entering Japan.
If Japanese returnees are returning to Japan from a country where a mutated strain of the virus is endemic, or from a country or region where an infected person with the mutated virus has been confirmed, Japanese returnees are required to wait for three days at a place designated by the quarantine station chief (an accommodation facility secured by the quarantine station), in addition to the above inspection conditions.
If Japanese returnees are found to be negative, Japanese returnees will leave the accommodation provided by the quarantine station and stay at home until 14 days have passed from the time Japanese returnees entered the country.
