Visa

   Visas are issued in the Japanese Embassy, and cannot be obtained at the port of entry in Japan. The visa confirms the validity of a foreign national’s passport and also suggests that the bearer of said visa would not pose any problem as long as he/she enters Japan in accordance with the conditions specified on the visa. Furthermore, holding a visa is only one of the requirements for a landing permission application at the port of entry of Japan and does not guarantee that the holder of the visa will be able to enter Japan.


In addition, it is recommended to take out overseas travel insurance.
  • An overseas travel insurance makes you feel secure, even in emergencies, and you can enjoy your trip.
  • Medical expenses can be very high in Japan. If the travel insurance you purchased offers sufficient coverage of treatment costs, you can receive treatment without concern.
  • It is recommended to have an overseas travel insurance with travel support for hospital referrals, medical interpretation, and cashless medical service.

1. Temporary Visitor Visa
  • Brunei Nationals do not require a visa to enter Japan for a short-stay trip of 15 days or less, such as a vacation or visiting relatives. Some specific purposes do require a visa, applicants should contact the Visa Section at the Embassy for further information.
  • Brunei Certificate of Identity holders (Brunei PR) are required to obtain a visa to visit Japan. Furthermore, the Certificate of Identity and re-entry visa must have validity for more than 6 months.
  • For foreign nationals, the Embassy only accepts visa applications from those who reside in Brunei Darussalam. In other words, you cannot apply for a visa if you are a short-term visitor such as a tourist, or if you are visiting family members in Brunei. However, if there are unavoidable circumstances, consult with the Japanese Embassy before making the application.
