Japan: Americans Now Need A $28 Visa To Enter

Before the pandemic, American travelers to Japan did not have to obtain a visa to enter the country.

All that has changed since the pandemic and Japan is taking baby steps (I refer to them as "Timid Japan" over this) in reopening the country to foreign tourists. 

What else is now required to enter Japan?

From Travel Noire:

Japan is the latest country to ease its borders for at least 98 countries. If you’re heading to Japan from America, you will now need a visa to enter.

Before the pandemic, Americans didn’t pay as they were exempted from leisure travel. But all that has changed and it will cost you $28 for a single visa entry.

Foreign travelers will also have to obtain private medical insurance that covers medical expenses related to COVID-19. Masks are required, and travelers must be supervised by an organized tour group.
