Can I bring medication with me when I go to Japan?
Yes. Provided the amount of medication you bring is two month supply or less, no doctor’s letter or certification will be necessary.
However, if you wish to bring medical narcotics or psychotropics (medication for mental condition), a doctor’s certificate and other documents must be submitted to Japanese Health Bureau.
If you have concerns about bringing your medication or if you plan to bring more than two month’s supply or psychotropics/medical narcotics, JHI can advise and assist your application to bring your medicine to Japan. Please contact us at our email address.
*Note: Illegal drugs, including but not limited to cannabis, amphetamine and isobutyl nitrite (RUSH) are prohibited and must not be brought into Japan.
