Applying for a Japan eVisa is straightforward and only takes a few minutes. The application now takes place entirely online, and requires the applicant to have certain documents to fill in the form correctly.
To apply for an eVisa for Japan, you will be required to have a valid United States passport. You should check it is fully up-to-date, and has at least six months’ validity from the expected date of arrival in Japan. If it does not, you will have to apply for a new replacement passport before applying for your electronic visa.
You will be required to input specific information from the passport into the online application form as part of the application process, including the number of the document and the issue and expiry dates.
It will also be necessary to provide basic biographical information on the Japanese eVisa form, such as full name, country of birth, and current address.
US applicants will also be required to answer a few security-based questions, as well as to supply a few details of the trip to Japan, such as accommodation, flight details, and arrival and return dates.
You will also need a valid credit or debit card. This is required to pay the Japan eVisa processing fee.
US travelers are also advised to take time to double-check the details on the form before submitting it for approval. This is to avoid delays caused by incorrect or missing information being uploaded as part of your application.
