The Embassy continues to advise Irish citizens in Japan to monitor developments closely in relation to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, and to follow the advice of local, in particular Prefectural and also national authorities for details of specific measures in force in those areas. For further information on the latest entry restrictions and requirements in place in Japan and Ireland, please visit our travel advice page. Follow us on twitter @IrishEmbJapan and @IrishEmbJapanEN for further information and updates. Irish citizens in Japan can also contact the Embassy in Tokyo by phone +81 (0)3 3263 0695 or by email on email@example.com. As the Embassy is operating on reduced staffing and reduced hours, communication by email is preferred. We will prioritise responding to urgent queries.
As of 13 September, remaining COVID-19 restrictions on entry visa and preclearance processing, which were brought in as a necessary interim measure to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, have now been lifted. Please check the website of Immigration Service Delivery or the visa section of our website for more details.
All travellers arriving into Ireland must continue to fully comply with measures required by law, including producing proof of vaccination, recovery from COVID-19, or a negative PCR test. Please continue to check the latest Government Advice
