  Covid test required  
  Mandatory quarantine  
  Proof of relationship     Original copy of Japanese family registry  

I had arrived at Haneda International Airport (Tokyo, Japan) from JFK (New York, USA).
I entered Japan successfully with a short stay visa (as Japanese citizen’s spouse, an original copy of family registry (Koseki Tohon) and a covid negative form form by Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

We haven’t seen each other for over 11 months and we got married this summer under Japanese law.

I had my PCR test prior to departure (within 72 hours of departure) and I had another test when I arrived at the airport.

I’m currently in quarantine with my wife.
I will be here for another 3 weeks.
