Please allow ample time for processing requests. The SICE is not able to contact any embassy in support of an individual attempting to gain entry to attend the ICCAS-SICE2009 Conference. Because the application for a visa can be a lengthy process, we recommend that you start your visa application process as soon as possible.

For more information on Japanese Visas, please read General information for visiting Japan. (The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan)
