VISA Support Request

In addition to a valid passport, some foreign nationals are required to obtain a visa, issued by the Japanese Embassy or Consulate in your country, to enter Japan.

For details of the procedures, please visit the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan or contact the Japanese Embassy or Consulate in your country, since required steps to obtain visas vary from country to country.

Registrants in the delegate, speaker/chair, student, accompanying person or press categories are able to make a request for the visa support documents. Due to the official nature of visa documents issued by the congress organizer, pre-registration including full payment is required to request a set of documents to support your visa application. After completing your registration and full payment, please fill in the visa support request form below bottom and submit it. Please note that your application will be reviewed by the organizer and in some cases issuance of documents may be declined.

It sometimes takes more than a month to obtain a visa from the Japanese Embassy or Consulate in your country, so we suggest you to request the WOC2014 Registration secretariat for the supporting documents well in advance, by the middle of March.

Please also note that the documents issued by the organizer do not assure the applicants of obtaining the visa but will be judged by the Japanese Embassy or Consulate where you have applied for your visa. The Japanese Embassy or Consulate may also have their own separate requirements for other documents.

VISA assistance is available from October 2013 - March 15, 2014.
Please note that we are unable to assist with any applications received after the deadline.

Visa assistance service is now closed.
