Please visit the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) of Japan (www.mofa.go.jp/j_info/visit/visa/short/novisa.html) to check for the countries and regions that have a visa exemption agreement with Japan.
For nationals and citizens of those countries and regions not included on the list, a visa is required to enter Japan. Carefully read the Japanese visa guidelines provided by the MOFA at www.mofa.go.jp/j_info/visit/visa/index.html.
You may also need to contact the local Japanese embassy or consulate in your country to apply for a valid visa.
Please kindly note that the organizing committee is not authorized to assist with the visa application process beyond providing a conference invitation letter. The conference invitation letter, however, cannot guarantee the approval of a visa application. Should your application be denied, the conference organizing committee cannot change the decision of the MOFA, nor will the organizing committee engage in discussions or correspondence with the consulate or the visa center on behalf of the applicant.
