Possible to get into Japan by way of Thailand?


Recommended Posts

I seem to think I read that Thailand is on a bubble list of sorts, where you can enter Japan from Thailand, but not from the USA (assuming you have been in country long enough/past quarantine). Anyone with factual info?

Unless you have Japan permanent residency, married to/dependent of a Japanese citizen... at present, no.   Waiting for the green light myself, could really use some yakiniku and Japow, hoping they let vaccinated tourists in for December 2021.   Considering how risk averse they are culturally though, I wouldn't bet on it (as per how they decided to go with visitors for the Olympics).

The bubble was only until 1 January from what I read and for legal residents in thailand only. No foreigners allowed into japan now, unless you are married to japanese and have residency in japan

I think November/December is a best case scenario.  I'm missing it too.  Glad I got in a visit prior to Covid.

 

Good for my bank account at least, I seem to spend way too much money whenever I visit.

I suggest you  read news, yes?  

"Medical systems are on the verge of collapse," Osaka Governor Hirofumi Yoshimura said during a press conference on Wednesday, according to the Associated Press.  The Associated Press reported that according to health officials in the region, roughly 70 percent of hospital beds in Osaka are now occupied with COVID-19 patients, prompting Yoshimura to declare a "medical emergency."    The Japanese Association for Acute Medicine and the Japanese Society for Emergency Medicine say many hospital emergency rooms are refusing to treat people including those suffering strokes, heart attacks and external injuries.  I think this is going to make it more difficult for anyone to enter. Japanese can shut down entry with no notice like they did  last year.
