Visas granted by the Japanese Government are issued only by embassies or consulates under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan. A visa cannot be acquired after arriving in Japan and a visa itself does not guarantee landing (status of residence) permission. The possession of a visa satisfies only one of the conditions for application for landing at an airport or seaport. In other words, foreigners in possession of a visa will not automatically qualify entry until they receive landing permission after going through immigration examination.
Normally, a visa can be issued 5 working days. Urgent or express visa is not available.
