Visitors and Vendors

  • No general visitors are permitted on campus until advised otherwise.

  • Invited domestic guests visiting campus for essential business must take the PCR Test the day before planned activities. Their OIST host should confirm the PCR Test registration beforehand and provide support if needed in dropping off their PCR sample. Upon receiving a negative test result, they may participate in activities on campus.

  • Vendors from mainland Japan working without close and prolonged contact with OIST personnel are not required to take the PCR Test (contact koji.fukuoka@oist.jp to confirm). Before entering campus, vendors should have a temperature check and complete a health and travel questionnaire at either the Main Reception or Bosai Center. Social distancing measures must be observed. Please inform the Main Reception or Bosai Center and the Emergency Response Coordinator in advance of arrival on campus.
