Entry Requirements for Japan

  1. Japanese government allows foreigners to enter Japan if their purpose of visit is business with a stay for less than 3 months. That means WSTS Meeting attendees have rights to enter Japan as the meeting is “business.”
  2. Visitors are all required to be registered to ERFS (“Entrants, Returnees Follow-up System”) by a person in charge of receiving visitors. This refers to the company or organization that employs the visitor or invites the visitor for business or entertainment. All attendees need to ask their company for a contact in Japan to be registered to ERFS by a Company employee who works for their company’s Japanese branch office. If this is not possible please contact WSTS administrator for another option.
  3. After the successful registration to ERFS and issuance of the certificate, the attendee can apply for a visa issued by Embassies or Consulates or Consular Office of Japan (for Taiwan, Taipei Kaohsiung offices of Japan-Taiwan Exchange Association) for the WSTS meeting. Currently, all the foreign visitors are required to apply for a visa when entering Japan. The flight should be booked prior to applying for a visa (flight information is required on the visa). 
  4. Update on Entry Requirements to Japan with regards to COVID-19 Vaccination and Pre-Entry Testing. Effective Sep. 7, 2022, all travelers entering Japan, from the ‘Blue’ Countries, see list: LINK will no longer need to test prior to departure, should they possess a valid vaccination certificate, showing 3 doses of COVID-19 vaccine. Those with 1 or 2 doses of COVID-19 vaccine, will be required to submit a negative result of a pre-departure COVID-19 test, taken within 72 hours of departure. (There are some exceptions) more information: LINK

  5. All the attendees have to install “MySOS” application on their smartphones during their stay in Japan. Attendees are recommended to install the “MySOS” application and use the “Fast Track” system to complete quarantine procedures via the application in advance (a couple days before you depart your country), so that you can smoothly pass through the immigration. Otherwise, it is possible to waste additional hours at the airport! https://www.allm.net/en/mysos
  6. Attendees are also recommended to use “Visit Japan Web” service https://www.digital.go.jp to register necessary information for smooth Customs, Immigration and Quarantine.
