After COVID, there are lots of uncertainties regarding flight info, sales, travel insurance and travel restrictions, so I thought it would be a good idea to centralise that info into one thread. There's already been a little flight info in this thread recently: https://www.ski.com.au/xf/threads/japan-2020-2021-snow-season-planning.87306/ Current problems & info: - Japan has a current policy forbidding incoming passengers(tourists) entering from most countries, if you've been in those countries in the last 14 days. It's problematic, because where do you stay for 14 days so you can get into Japan? - Travel insurance for medical including COVID can be a problem traveling into Japan. - Japan will open slowly, with travel bubbles initially, which is likely to include NZ, Australia, Thailand, Vietnam, and probably Taiwan, S. Korea & China. The first business flights will start in July, initially restricted to 250 per day. - Rules for mask wearing will probably apply for certain things in Japan.
