The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games were postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and have been rescheduled to be held between 23 July and 8 August 2021.

On 20 March 2021, the Five Parties, comprising the International Olympic Committee, the International Paralympic Committee, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, the Organising Committee Tokyo 2020 and the Government of Japan, issued a statement announcing that overseas spectators for the Olympic and Paralympic Games will not be allowed entry into Japan. This decision has been taken to help ensure the safety of both participants and the Japanese public. Olympic and Paralympic tickets purchased by overseas residents from the Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee will be refunded.

The Tokyo 2020 Playbooks outline the responsibilities of all participants and the health and safety rules that must be followed, including information specific to COVID-19 precautions. The playbooks will be updated when further information is available.
