  1. Please check the Japanese MOFA site for a list of countries with visa exemptions.
  2. If you travel on a passport issued by a country NOT on this list, you will require documents issued in Japanese by the host. An English language letter of invitation WILL NOT suffice in most cases.
  3. We recommend you give yourself at least ONE MONTH to complete the visa process.
  4. To begin the process, complete registration and payment of registration fees, reserve accommodation and flights, and complete and return the visa information form in full [xls] [pdf].
