TRANSIT - PCR test required?

Hi guys,

Will be on transit NRT (same day connection), all in 1 ticket.

Difficult to find official info online, but do I need a PCR test to transit in NRT?

Best to check with your airline or post in the air travel forum = https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowForum-g1-i10702-Air_Travel.html

Well Air Canada doesn't require it. Not too sure if NH requires a PCR - test as a prerequisite for boarding.

Would appreciate if anyone knows if NH requires a PCR - test as a prerequisite for boarding as their website is somewhat vague.

Destination country doesn't require it either. Just need to know if Japan requires a negative test even for transit like Taiwan.

As long as you stay on the airside in NRT or HND, ie. w/o going thru' Japan immigration and customs, then you're not subject to the current quarantine requirements.

Better ensure with your airline that your check in luggage can be checked thru' to the final destination.

The quarantine requirements are imposed by country.
