Question about Corona Virus

Updated 28th May, 10:33

Japan has suspended its visa waiver system for anyone travelling on a British passport until at least the end of May 2020. This means you cannot enter Japan as a visitor without a visa. In addition, travellers arriving from the UK and most European countries are not allowed to enter Japan at this time.

The UK government and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office advises against all but essential international travel and strongly advises all travellers abroad to return to the UK.

If your trip is scheduled between now and the end of June, please contact us by email (travel2japan@jtb-europe.com) and we will get to back to you as soon as possible to discuss your options.

If your flight is not booked through us, please contact the airline concerned.
