Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Who is eligible for the Japan Rail Pass?

Japan Rail Pass is a special multi-use discounted ticket valid on all JR trains, buses, and ferry services. It is available to all non-Japanese nationals who wish to visit Japan for tourism and leisure purposes.

All tourists must have a Tourist Visa stamped in their passport. Without the Tourist Visa you will not be eligible, and therefore, you will not be able to exchange your order (JR voucher) for the actual Japan Rail Pass.

There are 2 types of Tourist Visa:

- For a stay of 15 days or less

- For a stay of 90 days or less

Any foreign citizen who applies for "stay for sight-seeing" will be granted a Tourist visa stamp or sticker. Entering the country under any other status such as "student", "foreign employee","trainee","military" etc. will not be accepted as eligible.
