Nationals of countries that do not have "Reciprocal Visa Exemption Arrangements" with Japan must obtain a visa.
A Temporary Visitor's Visa is usually required as permission to stay in Japan for a period of up to 90 days for non-remunerative activities such as sightseeing, participating in amateur sports, visiting relatives, taking inspection tours, participating in lectures or researches, attending conferences, making business contacts or other similar activities.
Needless to say, the Temporary Visitor’s Visa cannot be used for any remunerative purposes, which involve profit making or payment acceptance within Japan by the visitor.
To apply for a visa, the applicant must apply in person to a Japanese Embassy or a consulate, usually in his or her home country. The following documents must be submitted whatever the purpose of visit you are going to make:
As the type of documents required for the application may differ according to the purpose of your visit, the applicant is advised to check with the Japanese Embassy or consulate beforehand.
Visa Fee Exemption: The nationals of some 60 countries around the world are exempted from visa fees.
When you need to apply for a tourist visa at a Japanese embassy in your country, we can provide invitation letter, itinerary, flight e-ticket receipt, and hotel booking vouchers both in Japanese and English.
