Frequently Asked Questions | 2020 Tokyo Olympics eVisa: Afghanistan

Do I need a visa for Japan to attend the Olympic Games?

Once the government of Japan finishes managing this eVisa program, many citizens will need an eVisa to travel to the Games. Most likely, Afghanistan citizens will need an eVisa too.

How long does it take to get an eVisa for Japan for the 2020 Olympics?

Afghanistan residents can choose from three processing speeds, to select the right one based on how fast you need your Japan eVisa.

We offer Standard, Rush, and Super Rush processing. Many eVisas take less than a week or two to process. If you go to the consulate or embassy for a regular visa, it will likely take longer for you to receive your visa.

What is the cost of a 2020 Summer Olympics visa?

For citizens of Afghanistan, the cost of your eVisa to Tokyo depends on the speed you select during checkout.

Visa fees are based on which visa you select and any additional fees such as choosing the rush processing. They can cost anywhere from $6 USD to $55 USD. The visa fees will be released on April 1st.

With the Japan eVisa, how many times can I enter and exit the country?

Regular Japan visas allow either single-entry, double-entry, or multiple-entry. When the eVisa is released, it will most likely offer the same types of entry selections.

Single-entry means you can only enter Japan once. Double-entry allows two entries into Japan, and multiple-entry allows unlimited entries into Japan as long as your visa is valid.

**When does the eVisa expire?

Be sure to plan your trip accordingly and figure out the number of days you can spend in Japan.

If you are going to Japan for the Olympics, you will be receiving a single-entry tourist visa, which will be valid for three months from the date it is issued. So, if you are going to the games in July and August of 2020, then you will want to get your eVisa no earlier than the middle of May.

Multiple-entry visas may last you anywhere from 1 to 5 years.

How long can I stay in Japan for the 2020 Olympics on an eVisa?

Single-entry tourist visas have a duration of up to 90 days from the time you enter the country. If you are eligible for a multiple-entry visa, it may allow you to stay in Japan for longer than 90 days.

What documents do I need to apply for an eVisa for the Olympics?

Afghanistan citizens will need the following to apply for a visa online:

  • Passport - Your passport must remain valid for another 6 months, with 2 blank pages available for stamping.
  • Recent Photo - You must have a recent passport photo that is in color, not black and white.
