Six places will be available in the men's Laser and women's Laser Radial classes at the 2018 Asian Games and 2019 Pan American Games, whereas sixty-one more will be distributed to the sailors at the World Championships for all boats in 2019. Moving towards 2020, continental qualification regattas will be held to decide the remainder of the total quota, while two spots each in the one-person dinghy classes will be granted to eligible NOCs through the Tripartite Commission Invitation.
As hosts, Japan has been guaranteed one quota place in each of the ten classes.
