Japan visas.Japanese Visa Applications

If you are not a national of one of the countries (most European nations, Australia and North America) who are usually issued a 3-month (90-day) tourist visa on each entry to the country, then you will need to apply for a visa in advance to enter Japan.

Passport photo(s) and a return ticket are usually necessary. Processing is usually free of charge, though there is a charge for the visa itself.

Fees vary on whether the visa is single entry, multiple entry or transit. Visitors should ensure their passports are valid for at least 90 days following your departure date from Japan.

Applicants for visas in Japan can also find more information and application forms from the Japanese embassy or consulate in their own countries or from the relevant pages on the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs website where pdf application forms can be downloaded and printed out.
