Visa Requirements for visiting Japan

Tourist Visa

If you are planning to attend the World Family Therapy Congress in Japan, you may need a Visa especially if you are a citizen of China, Russia, the CIS Countries, or Georgia or the Philippines, Viet Nam.

For more information on the Visa process or requirements, consult the web site of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan, https://www.mofa.go.jp/j_info/visit/visa/short/other_visa.html

Japan has no requirement regarding your passport expiration date.  It must be longer than your stay in Japan.  However, it would be safest to make sure your passport is valid for at least 90 days before you leave for the country.
