VISA SUPPORT

To find out if a visa is required for your trip to Japan, please ask the embassy or consulates of Japan in your country. You can also find information here(https://www.mofa.go.jp/j_info/visit/visa/index.html).

If you need an invitation letter in order to apply for a visa to enter Japan, you should complete your registration with payment. Then, please contact a VISA support staff at iabmas-visa@eng.hokudai.ac.jp before March 30 with your registration ID. You will be given an application form for the invitation letter which you should fill in and submit to the staff.
After you submit the form, IABMAS 2020 reviews your application and issues the invitation letter once it is approved.
This process takes 1-2 weeks. You may be required to submit some additional documents/information before the approval.
Please note that it will take time to process the visa and IABMAS 2020 does not issue the visa itself.
Once you receive the documents issued by the IABMAS 2020 visa secretariat, you must go to the nearest Embassy of Japan/Consulate-General in your home country for visa application and collection.
Failure to obtain the appropriate visa to travel to Japan does not constitute a refund.

For any inquiry, please contact the Secretary by email at: iabmas-visa@eng.hokudai.ac.jp
