VISA INFORMATION:
Depending on nationality, the purpose of visit and the length of intended stay, a foreigner may or may not require a visa to enter Japan.

Nationals of countries and regions within the visa waiver program holding valid passports can apply for landing permission for short-term stays for such purposes as sightseeing and business trips without obtaining a visa. However, this arrangement neither permits the engagement in paid activities nor staying beyond the period allowed in each arrangement. In such cases, it is necessary for these foreigners to obtain a visa.
