Hi Sharon, Thank you for your email. Before I get in to all the travel requirements surrounding Covid, may I ask what the purpose of your visit to Japan will be? Currently, Japan is still not open to tourists or visitors without a visa. There has been some mention in the news that Japan is considering easing border restrictions as early as June, but nothing has been confirmed yet. If you are traveling for business, your host organization should be able to walk you through all the necessary steps for getting a visa and appropriate authorization to enter Japan. It's very likely that entry requirements and procedures could fluctuate over the next few weeks, so I encourage you to check Japan's ministry of foreign affairs website for official changes and announcements. https://www.mofa.go.jp/ca/cp/page22e_000925.html
