METI will establish an exceptional framework concerning the entry into or departure from Japan of human resources and others, which is considered necessary for the purpose of businesses. Under this framework, METI will conduct a pilot effort for stipulating additional sanitation measures that such human resources should satisfy in parallel with maintaining existing border control measures.
This framework may require a Japanese national who intends to depart from Japan to file in advance a certificate certifying a negative result of a PCR test in response to a request from his/her destination country.
In light of this situation and for the convenience of business travelers and the companies to which they belong, METI hereby announces a list of travel medicine clinics and other hospitals, as of July 2, 2020, at which people are able to obtain a certificate certifying a negative result of a PCR test.*
- List of medical facilities cooperating in “providing PCR tests for business travelers and issuing certificates certifying a negative result of a PCR test to them” (as of July 2, 2020)(in Japanese)(PDF:292KB)
This list was provided by the Japan Society of Travel and Health (JSTH) through a referral by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare (MHLW).
- The list will be updated from time to time. If you wish to access the latest information, visit the JSTH website .
