Japan to Drop Border Restrictions from 11 Oct
Japan will fully open to international tourism from 11 October 2022 with the daily passenger cap lifted, removal of package booking requirements and return of visa on arrival for the applicable 68 countries.
This means that you too can enjoy all that Niseko has to offer this coming winter.
There are still some requirements to be met for entering Japan. For those that are fully vaccinated against covid-19 with a booster, it means proving your vaccination. Those that are not vaccinated are currently required to submit a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours prior to departure to Japan.
Here are some useful links for the current requirements as of 11 Oct, 2022:

For those not vaccinated, pre-departure negative PCR test requirements: https://www.mhlw.go.jp/stf/cov...
Requirements for Children
When a parent/guardian has a valid vaccination certificate: Children under 18 who are not vaccinated can enter Japan if their parent/guardian has a valid proof of vaccination that meets the current requirements (3 times vaccinated by approved vaccinations) and a parent/guardian will be looking after them while in Japan.
When a parent/guardian does NOT have a valid vaccination certificate: Children under 6 who are not vaccinated do not require a negative test when their parent/guardian has a valid negative PCR test within the 72 hour period prior to entering Japan. In this case, children that are 6 and above will require a negative test.
These changes mean that there will be a rush on reservations for coming to Niseko, so as always, we suggest securing your stay and flights as early as possible.
