Letter of invitation

SOLAS has prepared a generic invitation letter that can be used for the visa application. The letter can be downloaded here.

If you need a personalised invitation letter for your visa application or any other documents, please contact the SOLAS IPO and let us know your full address. Please
check if you need any special wording or content. Note that we can NOT issue an invitation letter if your registration fee is not paid yet.

If you need supporting documents in Japanese for visa application, please 
contact the SOLAS IPO no later than the end of February to leave enough time for document delivery and visa application.


As of July 2017, Japan has taken measures concerning the Visa Exemption Arrangements with 68 countries and regions. Nationals and citizens of those countries and regions that do NOT require a visa to enter Japan when their visits are tourism, commerce, conferences, visiting relatives/ acquaintances, etc. can be reviewed here.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan provides detailed information about which countries or regions that DO require a visa to enter Japan and on how to proceed. Find these information here.
