Visa Information

Participants who are not eligible for visa exempt entry MUST apply for visitors visa in advance. Please be noted that BMI-2022 is not authorized to assist with the visa application process beyond providing the official invitation letter. Should your application be denied, BMI-2022 cannot change the decision of the Japan Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA), nor will BMI-2022 engage in discussion or correspondence with the MOFA or the Embassy of Japan on behalf of the applicant.


Please check the list of the countries that have the visa exemption agreement with Japan. If your country is included in the list, you usually do not need to apply for an entry visa to Japan at the embassy of Japan in your country.


Read carefully the Japanese visa guide provided by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan. Please note that it is the embassy of Japan in your country that makes a decision on issuing a visa. Usually the procedure takes considerably long, so you need to begin the procedure as soon as possible.
