Visa Information

Any foreign visitor entering Japan must have a valid passport for the duration of their stay, and all visitors must comply with the conditions of their visas.

Citizens of 68 countries coming to Japan for tourism purposes including Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, USA, UK and almost all European nations do not require a visa (rules and conditions apply) and will be granted permission for short-term stay upon arrival. If you are a citizen of a country that doesn't require a visa, be sure to check the official rules for Japan visa requirements as they can periodically change.

Visitors from outside these 68 countries must apply for a visa in advance. Visit the official Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan website for further information.

Japanese law requires that all short-term foreign visitors must have proof of onward travel (departure) from Japan. All short-term foreign visitors to Japan are photographed and fingerprinted upon arrival and must carry their passport with them in Japan at all times.

Working and engaging in paid activities on a short-term stay visa is strictly forbidden.
