From 1st November 2020, all foreign nationals with the status of residence with a valid re-entry permit, are not required to obtain “the Letter of Confirmation of Submitting Required Documentation for Re-entry into Japan” or “Receipt for Request of Re-entry” when re-entering Japan from countries/regions designated as an area subject to denial of permission to enter Japan. Please be noted that the certificate of negative test result of pre-entry testing conducted within 72 hours of the departure time of the flight (hereinafter referred to as “certificate of negative test result”) is still needed when re-entering from countries/regions designated as an area subject to denial of permission to enter Japan. Please refer to this page for countries/ regions designated to denial of permission to enter Japan. Please see here for the valid format of the “certificate of negative test result”.

(Note) Those who have already possessed and will possess diplomatic and official visas don’t need to obtain the “certificate of negative test result”.
