Visa and FastTrack at entry

Entry to Japan requires Visa currently. Visa is valid for 3 months. Please assume the following 1-3 process may take about one month.

1. You provide us your information:

send LOC (hara@hep.px.tsukuba.ac.jp) your passport page, arrival date and e-mail address. The workshop will start from Monday, so we expect you to arrive on Sunday 23rd. (transport arrangement from the airport is available only on Sunday)

2. We enter your data on the system called ERFS and send "Certificate for Completion of Registration to the ERFS system" to you. (ERFS is dedicated to workshop visitors, so extended stay is not certified except for extra 1-2 days for "transfer" in Japan)

3. You apply for the visa with the certification: your local embassy/consulate will identify you based on the certification.


4. before leaving for Japan: be sure about Fast track Fast Track (mhlw.go.jp):

Fast Track requirements are left unchanged.. 

Fast Track is a way to handle some quarantine procedures before you enter Japan from overseas, using MySOS Web online or the MySOS app on a smartphon. This way, the time at quarantine will be significantly shortened, and we recommend everyone to follow this procedure. Requirements (vaccination, PCR and others) are dependent on your country. Please be sure to understand the requirements on your way back also.
