Japan was one of many final nations to reopen for worldwide guests in late 2022. I organized a “private tour visa” earlier than the opening and loved very cheap resort charges for a number of weeks.
Once I flew to Japan final time in March, I solely needed to “certify” in the course of the on-line check-in course of that I used to be both sufficiently vaccinated (I’m – 4 photographs) or had a current covid take a look at. Lufthansa didn’t verify these at any level, however I uploaded them to the Go to Japan Net to get clearance to stress-free entry.
I’m glad that Japan now removes the final obstacles to entry, however do not forget that vaccines save lives.
