The Japanese government tightened border controls again in response to the global spread of Omicron, a new strain of the CCP virus, and on December 1, the Japanese government asked airlines to suspend all new reservations for international flights arriving in Japan for the month of December.

Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism has asked airlines to suspend accepting new reservations for international flights arriving in Japan for a month from Dec. 1 to 31, according to the Central News Agency.

However, those who have completed their flight reservations by December 1 will not have their flights cancelled. Since the suspension of new reservations includes Japanese living abroad, Japanese who have not yet made reservations will not be able to return home during December.

It is reported that Japan’s current border control measures are in principle a moratorium on accepting new applications for entry from foreigners, and a reduction in the daily maximum number of people entering Japan to about 3,500.

For measures to reserve additional airline seats after January 2022, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism said it will discuss and announce later depending on the status of the outbreak.
