Visa/Invitation letters


Depending on your nationality you may be required to obtain a visa to enter Japan. Please apply for your Visa well in advance of your travel. As visa guidelines and application requirements vary considerably depending on the country, we recommend that you contact the Japanese embassy in your home country as early as possible to inquire about the specific visa regulations regarding your country. You can also find relevant information about the application process on the following website:
