A valid passport is required to enter Japan. Participants from certain countries may also require a visa to enter Japan. Currently, passport holders of a number of countries may enter Japan for a short period under a visa waiver program.

If you need an entry visa to visit Japan, fill out “Visa Information Form” and send it to the Secretariat.
Important Notes:
For the Secretariat to assist you with the visa application documents, the participants must complete the registration to CLEO-PR & OECC/PS 2013 including the necessary payments.
After the appointment, it may take several weeks before you actually receive the visa. Therefore it is very important that you start to arrange your visa as soon as possible.
