Visiting Japan pages give explanations on how to obtain visas for foreign nationals wishing to enter Japan. Whether you need to obtain a visa to enter Japan depends on your nationality, purpose of visit and length of stay.
Visa applicants should be aware that they may submit an application only at the Japanese diplomatic or consular mission responsible for the Australian State of which they are a resident. Applications are made in person and the applicant may be interviewed. The processing time may vary between each diplomatic mission at which an application is submitted. Therefore we ask that if you are applying for a visa at the Brisbane Consulate-General then you are aware of processing times pertaining to making a visa application in Brisbane.
