Visa Information for Participants from Abroad:

The regulations for entering Japan as a visitor differ significantly depending on the country that issued your passport. For many countries, no visa is required to enter Japan as a tourist and stay up to 90 days. However, for many other countries, a visa is required even for a short stay. If you are not sure about whether you need a visa, please contact your nearest Japanese embassy or consulate.

If you do need a visa, you may be required to submit a letter of acceptance stating that your abstract has been accepted for presentation at ICPP 2013. If your abstract is accepted, the conference organizers can send you an official letter of acceptance on request. (Please note that we are not able to send invitation letters except to invited speakers.)

You may also be required to document other aspects of your trip to Japan, including transportation and lodging arrangements, in order to obtain a visa. Please understand that all such matters are your own responsibility. The conference organizers cannot do this for you.
