Our Pearson VUE-owned and operated Pearson Professional Centers (PPCs) are available for testing in Japan. We will continue to deliver exams to any independent third-party test centers (PVTC and PVTC Selects) who have the ability to operate within Japan.
Candidates who exhibit symptoms upon arrival at the test center may be asked to reschedule their exam for another time when in full health.
You must bring and wear your own face mask while at a Pearson VUE-owned test center and throughout your exam. Any surgical or cloth face mask, including a homemade face mask, is acceptable as long as your nose and mouth are fully covered. Face masks with exhalation valves and face shields are not acceptable. Candidates without a face mask will be denied testing services. We are unable to provide face masks to candidates.
Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare COVID-19 Guidance urges cooperation from business owners in preventing the spread of the disease, and specifically asks business owners holding events “to prevent the spread of infection, such as encouraging participants to wash their hands, installing alcohol disinfectants, and asking those who have symptoms such as colds not to participate”.
Please note: availability is limited at this time because we are following social distancing guidelines and government guidance. Please log in to your online candidate profile to search for a variety of dates and locations to schedule your exam and visit our FAQ page for more information.
