Updated travel advice to all Irish citizens in Japan
The Embassy of Ireland continues to actively monitor the aftermath of
the 11 March earthquake/tsunami and aftershocks and is paying particular
attention to the situation regarding the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power
plant. We continue to liaise closely with the Japanese government and
EU/international partners in this regard.
Given the difficulties arising from the present situation, including
potential disruptions to the supply of essential goods and services, we
would encourage Irish citizens to consider leaving the north east of
Japan and the Tokyo region. This is particularly the case for people
with small children. Those seeking to leave these areas should make a
travel reservation as soon as possible. We are not specifically advising
people to leave Japan.
The Embassy's website is updated with the latest information as it
becomes available to us as well as appropriate travel advice. This
website will remain the primary method of conveying information on the
situation to Irish nationals in Japan. The website may be accessed via
the following link: http://www.irishembassy.jp/
We are also advising Irish nationals to closely monitor the advice
provided by their local authorities.
If you are in an affected area, please contact the Embassy (if you have
not already done so) to confirm your status and location or if you
require consular assistance.
