※ No visa is required for transit passengers regardless of nationality.
※ Even if one of the required documents is missing, the application will not be accepted.
※ If the information on the application form or the submitted documents are contrary to the facts, the visa will not be issued as a false application.

Step 2: Appointment Booking and Application Submission

The Consular Section of the Embassy of Japan in Armenia will only be available to those who made a reservation in advance.
Please make a reservation by e-mail from at least 1 week prior your desired visit date.
If you need an urgent response, please contact the Embassy by phone: +374 (11) 523010.

Step 3: Passport Collection

Sometimes the issuance of the visa may take more than 5 business days, so we recommend you to apply for a visa approximately 1 month before your departure date.
