TOP > Procedures > Invite a Foreigner for Short Stay
Japanese Immigration law defines "Status of Residence". A foreigner needs to fulfill requirements of at least one of the "Status of Residence". Under the status of "Temporary Visitor"「短期滞在」, a foreign national is allowed to stay in Japan for short period.
A foreign national who wish to come to Japan is required to have a valid VISA on his/her passport. He/she needs to apply for his/her VISA at Embassy/Consulate of Japan where he/she lives before entering to Japan.
Japan has mutual visa exemption agreements with many countries and regions. If your passport is issued by the country or region in the list, you are exempt from obtaining a Temporary Visitor VISA.
"Certificate of Eligibility" for a Status of Residence system is NOT applicable for "Temporary Visitor". Therefore a foreigner will apply for his/her VISA without "Certificate of Eligibility".
But it is good idea for a family or an employer in Japan to prepare some documents such as an invitation letter, itinerary, etc in advance for a visa application.
