Travel restriction updates

04 Jan 2021 / Japan

The Japanese government has announced that Japanese immigration will refuse entry to visitors of any nationality from abroad effective from 28 December 2020. This regulation does not apply to on-signing and off-signing crew. However, as the new regulation may result in flight cancellations, it is advisable to contact the respective airlines for flight availability.

Seaman’s book holding crew who has visited the UK or South Africa in the 14 days prior to arrival will not be allowed to enter Japan.
