A pre-departure test in Japan is required as well as PCR tests on days 2 & 8 in the UK while in quarantine. The Test to Release scheme can be used in England on day 5 to shorten the quarantine period.
Adults who have been fully vaccinated by the NHS and under 18s arriving in England from 19 July are exempt from quarantine but must still take the Day 2 test.
