From October 11th, Japan Welcomes More Malaysian Travelers

Japan is lifting a travel restriction starting October 11th to allow independent travellers from countries listed under the visa-waiver program, including Malaysia, to travel to the land of the rising sun. Those who have already booked or prefer tour packages will also enjoy the benefits of the visa-waiver resumption, which includes no longer needing registration on the Entrants, Returnees Follow-up System (ERFS). Additionally, the daily limit that was set previously will be abolished.

All travelers are required to show either a valid COVID-19 vaccination certificate of three doses of vaccines prescribed on the Emergency Use List of World Health Organization (WHO), or a certificate of negative PCR result of COVID-19 test conducted within 72 hours prior to departure from the original country. This measure will be applied from 0:00 AM (JST) on October 11, 2022.

Ms Fumi Matsumoto, Executive Director of Japan National Tourism Organization Kuala Lumpur Office is taking this announcement as a strong encouragement for Malaysians to travel to Japan and will continue to provide the latest information to everyone and make efforts to promote travel to Japan.

Statement from Satoshi Seino, President of JNTO: “The Japanese government has at last announced the resumption of individual travel for tourism purposes, visa waivers, and the elimination of the daily arrival cap. I am incredibly pleased to finally welcome back individual travelers after coping with the pandemic during a wait of two-and-a-half years.

In response to the announcement, JNTO will be doing everything we can to provide you with the latest information on coming to Japan so that many tourists can visit and journey throughout our country. So you can do more than take in Japan’s captivating culture, history, nature, and cuisine. We are also working hard on projects for sustainable tourism, adventure travel, and luxury travel. Japan is a highly attractive country not only for tourism, but also for international conferences and incentive travel. With the relaxed travel measures, Japan is fully prepared to host these events

Along with reveling in the many ways to take in the allures across Japan, now is a time when international visitors can take advantage of shopping opportunities. Japan has been busy over the past two-and-a-half years with preparations to welcome back everyone. Come see the new Japan. We eagerly await your arrival!”
