We've reviewed our advice for Japan. We've lowered the travel advice level. We now advise you exercise normal safety precautions. Higher levels apply in some areas. From 10 June, Japan will accept foreign tourists in stages. Initially, this will be limited to guided and organised tours only from countries listed as “blue” (low risk). Australia is listed as a blue country. The company organising your tour will sponsor your visa application. Be advised that Japan’s visa-waiver program is still suspended.

If you're going overseas, travel insurance is as important as a passport. If you can't afford travel insurance, you can't afford to travel. Read our advice, and download the CHOICE travel insurance guide before you go.
