Opening of a PCR test reservation website for foreign residents in Japan
PCR Examination Online Booking Service in Japan operated by Inbound Platform
Inbound Platform Corp. (Headquarters: Tokyo, CEO: Shin O), a company that develops various services related to tourism in Japan (consulting, media, chat concierge, Wi-Fi rental, RV rental, currency exchange) with the vision of “I want to visit Japan, again”, is pleased to announce that we have opened a COVID-19 PCR test reservation website for foreign residents in Japan that can be used in English, Chinese, or Korean on September 3rd, 2020.
Outline of this initiative
There are approximately 2.93 million foreign residents in Japan *1. Of these, 60% feel uneasy when using Japanese medical institutions, especially regarding communication issues such as “cannot understand some of the vocabularies”, or “cannot explain properly the symptoms”. *2
We are aware that for foreigners currently residing in Japan, it may be difficult to receive a PCR test due to language problems, complicated and lengthy procedures, etc. As a result, we have opened a website where you can easily book for a PCR medical examination (not covered by insurance) in English, Chinese and Korean.
・ The consultation time is from 11:00 to 19:00 on weekdays. Same day examination is possible for reservations made by 12:00.
・ A negative certificate will be issued on the next day of the test.
・ Affiliated Clinic: T Care Clinic (2F, 2-13-9 Hamamatsucho, Minato-ku, Tokyo 3 minutes walk from JR Hamamatsucho Station)
・ On-site medical examination is also available for 5 people or more (transportation fee may be charged if far away).
・ The price of the PCR test is 28,000 yen (including tax).
・ The test method is saliva or nasopharyngeal swab. They can be done in about 10 minutes.
