General Information for International Students
Japan has strict laws concerning medications and medical devices brought into the country. Some over-the-counter medications commonly used in the US are prohibited in Japan (i.e. Tylenol Cold, Nyquil, Sudafed, Advil Cold & Sinus, Vicks Inhaler, and others). Some prescription medications are illegal in Japan, even if they have been prescribed by a doctor in the US (i.e. Adderall). Depending on the medication, students may have to apply for a certificate called a Yakkan Shoumei prior to departing for Japan.
It is important that students applying to this program read the following links carefully to determine whether any medications they are currently taking are strictly illegal to bring into Japan or if they will require a Yakkan Shoumei.
