We're relocating from the Washington D.C. area to Bangkok, Thailand with a 3 to 4 hour layover in Tokyo's Narita airport. Will there be any quarantine required for her in Tokyo? Thanks, -Emily

Hi Emily,

Thanks for the question! It's generally not necessary to meet the import requirements of a country if you're only spending a layover there (as long as you're not switching airlines), but it would be a good idea to contact the Narita airport officials for the most up-to-date, relevant details.
