The requirements for a visa to enter Japan differ by nationality, place of residence, the purpose of visit, and the length of intended period of stay. Please check “68 Countries and Regions for Visa Exemptions” on the following website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan to see if you are required to obtain a visa: https://www.mofa.go.jp/j_info/visit/visa/short/novisa.html
If your country does NOT have a visa exemption agreement with Japan or if you have any questions about visas, please contact the nearest Japanese Embassy or Consulate in your country or the country where you reside.
Please note that AIU will provide a Summer Program participant with supporting documents if they requires any such documents; however, it is the participant's sole responsibility to apply for and obtain their visa.
