Japan Visa – How To Apply For A Japanese Visa

Have a trip to Japan in mind? You will not need a Japan Visa to visit Japan for up to 90 days. Although you will not need a visa for your travel to Japan, a valid United States passport will be needed. You should ensure that your passport is in order and up to date before your travel.

Things to keep in mind:

Check passport validity – All travelers to Japan will need a passport that is valid for at least 3 months after they depart Japan. The ideal amount of validity time that should be left on your passport when you depart a country should be roughly 6 months.

Blank visa pages – Japan along with many other countries require at least two blank visa pages in your passport book when you arrive and depart Japan. This will permit any necessary stamps that will need to be stamped in your passport during your travel.

Transit Visa – Sometimes a transit visa is required when traveling to a country on a connecting flight. Countries that your fight stops at overseas may need to see a transit visa when connecting flights.

NOTE: Some airline companies may still board passengers even though their passports are expired. This will cause issues when the traveler arrives in Japan and may be denied entry into the country. The United States Embassy and Consulate cannot help you if your passport is expired. Inquire about your passport status to help avoid this problem.
