With the high vaccination rate in the population which reaches 83.32 percent, it would be a matter of time for Japan to welcome back tourists from all over the world, and now is the time.

Regardless of their vaccination status, the majority of travelers are able to enter the country by presenting a negative COVID-19 screening test in order to enter Japan without quarantine. However, it would be better for you to also check the eligibility for this new entry requirement as some travelers from a certain country might be subject to different entry requirements. The categories implemented by Japan are a tiered system regarding infection risk by countries and regions into blue (low-risk), yellow (mid), and red (high-risk).



For the first time in over two years, Australia's international border was reopened in February 2022, resulting in happy family reunions and an increase in travel. The vaccination rate in the population itself is 86.36 percent.

In January 2022, Ireland was among the first countries to abolish the majority of its internal covid regulations, which now fits with their new entrance requirement elimination. No one entering Ireland will be subject to any travel restrictions starting on March 7, 2022.

No tests, vaccination records, quarantines, health documentation, or other covid-related entry requirements are necessary for visitors from any country to enter Ireland.


United Kingdom

United Kingdom joined the group of countries that have abolished all entrance criteria with effect from March 18th. Even certificates, tests, and forms are not required.

The majority of England's entrance criteria and internal limitations were removed earlier in 2022, but the country still had a few restrictions in place, most notably the necessity for unvaccinated passengers to undergo two tests. As a result, England was not included on this list. Right now, there are no longer any criteria at all. Entering the UK is precisely as it was before the epidemic.
