We continue to receive many inquiries about importing/exporting dogs to/from Japan.
I just wanted to update everyone on the current situation, and how COVID19 is affecting the export/import of dogs.
All cargo shipping of dogs internationally has been shut down till at least the end of May.
We have not yet received a timetable for when this will open up again.
Japan was under a national state of emergency which was just lifted recently.
Japan’s borders are currently closed to nationals of most countries.
The timetable for lifting border restrictions is unknown.
We will all just have to wait and see how things progress, and if any new information becomes available I will post an update here on the blog.
