Nationals of some countries will require a visa to enter Japan. If you are unsure whether you require a visa you can use the ‘check if you need a visa’ tool.


The visa process in Japan varies depending on which country you hold a passport in.

It is important to first consult the country’s entry requirements and, if required, we recommend applying  four months prior to your anticipated travel date.

Our organizers are here to assist you every step of the way. Registered delegates can request a visa invitation letter from HSR2024 during the registration process.
