Indian Tour Groups welcome in Japan starting 7th September

The Government of Japan has announced a policy to resume entry for Indian visitors entering Japan in group tours, conditionally for tourism purposes. Inbound tourism from India to Japan is set to resume for the first time in over two years. For visitors from all the countries including India, PCR tests on arrival and quarantines had no longer been conducted starting from the 7th of September with conditions. Japan has increased the entries of foreign nationals from 20,000 to 50,000 per day. Specifically for tourism purposes, conditional entries are allowed starting from the 7th of September onwards for those traveling in group tours conducted by tour agencies. It is the 70th anniversary of establishing diplomatic relations between Japan and India. The Japan National Tourism Organization, Delhi Office looks at this announcement as a step toward the full resumption of travel to Japan. It will continue to provide the latest information to everyone and make steady efforts to promote travel to Japan from India.

Statement from Satoshi Seino, President of JNTO:

I wholeheartedly welcome the accelerating pace at which the international community is preparing for the recovery of travel for tourism purposes. The government has announced a policy on Japan initiating action to join that effort. I take this as a first step toward the recovery of inbound tourism to Japan. JNTO is working with local governments and DMOs in Japan, as well as domestic and foreign travel agencies, airlines, and other organizations, to prepare for the resumption of inbound travel. In anticipation of major international events, such as the UNWTO World Forum on Gastronomy Tourism in December of this year, the Adventure Travel World Summit (ATWS) in 2023, and Expo 2025 Osaka, Kansai, we will step up our efforts to release information on tourism. Meanwhile, we plan to roll out promotions in consideration of Japan’s policy on accepting inbound tourists to Japan. Japan, an archipelago of some 7,000 islands stretching north to south for 3,000km, is a green country whose land is approximately 70% covered by forests. It is a place where you can enjoy beautiful nature. Japan’s other allures, including some of the world’s greatest cuisine, major cities like Tokyo, and traditions and culture that date back over 2,000 years, remain the same. Japan was ranked the top in the “Travel & Tourism Development Index 2021” by the World Economic Forum held in Davos in May.
