Outline of Objective and Initiative

The prefectural government is offering free PCR and rapid antigen testing (by subsidizing the cost of the test) to those who go to restaurants, events, travel or to travel back home using the vaccine testing package, or those who are worried about the rapid spread of the virus, in order to plan the balance between the current prevention measures in place and returning to normal life.

What is the vaccine testing package?

In the event the central or prefectural governments restrict the activity of people (eg. entry restrictions for buildings) in situations of increase virus spread, showing your vaccination status or a negative PCR/RAT test will allow the facility to relax restrictions to those who apply.

Note that, even if the spread is to the point where activities are not restricted by the central or prefectural governments, private organizers and restaurant owners can enforce restrictions and utilize this package.

General Testing During Periods of Increased Infection Spread

Free testing has been extended until Monday October 31st for those who are concerned about infection.


Anyone who does not show symptoms such as coughing and fever, and are concerned about the spread of infection are eligible. (Vaccination status will not be asked)

Examples of those who are eligible are below:

  • Anyone who has travelled to an area with an increased spread of infection or where the Omicron variant has been confirmed. Also, anyone who is concerned about possible infection that has spent a long period of time dining out with someone from one of the aforementioned regions.
  • Anyone who is in an environment that has many interactions with people from those regions, such as the workplace, etc...

We ask Iwate citizens who are worried about infection to undergo a test based on the fact that the spread of the virus is increasing within the prefecture and throughout the nation. Please refer ot the list of testing facilities to find where you can get a free test.

If you wish to take a test, please call the testing location beforehand.

Please bring your proof of identification (anything that proves your residency in Iwate) when you go to get tested.


Implementation Period

From Sunday January 9th 2022 to Thursday March 30th 2022

Testing as a Part of the Vaccine Testing Package


Anyone who does not show symptoms such as coughing and fever, and requires a proof of a negative test to go to restaurants, events, travel or to travel back home and has not received three doses of the vaccine.

Also anyone who requires a proof of negative test to interact with the elderly or those with underlying medical conditions, regardless of having received the third dose or not.

Important: You will need to show documentation (reservation details or tickets for events or travel) of the purpose of the vaccination when you apply for the test. If you cannot show proof of these, you will need to submit a statements which shows the activities and dates.

You are also eligible if you are visiting the prefecture and fit into the above criteria.

Implementation Period

From Monday December 20th 2021 until Monday October 31st 2022.
