New: Important Foreign National Entry Information to Japan

The Japanese government has announced that restrictions on new entries of foreign nationals will be lifted, effective 11 October 2022 (12:00 am JST).

Visas are no longer required to enter Japan for short-term stays within 90 days. ERFS (Entrants, Returnees Follow-up System) will also no longer be required. Visa exemptions for short-term stays apply only if you are a citizen of an eligible country (including the U.S., Canada, and Mexico). If your country is not eligible for visa exemptions, IEEE can provide you with the visa invitation letter to apply for a visa. Please complete and submit the Visa Invitation Letter form below.
