** Effective 1 June, the GOJ lifted requirements for COVID-19 testing and quarantine upon arrival for eligible travelers from the U.S. to Japan as long as they arrive with a negative PCR COVID test taken within 72 hours of departure to Japan, regardless of their vaccination status. Based on this lifting of restrictions, Okinawa FEML designation now expires 1 August 2022.
Individuals with FEML travel reservations to begin after July 31 must contact their approving officials for additional guidance and to align existing travel with updated policy, as feasible. All FEML travel must begin on or before July 31.
