Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Can I purchase the JR Pass if I have dual citizenship?

Citizens with double citizenship are eligible for the Japan Rail Pass, as long as they use their non-Japanese passport to enter the country. Those who enter Japan for tourist or leisure purposes will receive a Tourist Visa stamp or a sticker at the passport control of any Japanese airport. What this implies is that children of Japanese citizens with double nationality must also enter Japan using their non-Japanese passport.

Note: If you enter Japan with a Japanese passport or for other purposes than tourism/ leisure / sightseeing, you will not receive the Tourist Visa stamp / sticker. Should you attempt to exchange your order for a Japan Rail Pass without the stamp / sticker, you will be denied the exchange.
