Frequently Asked Questions | 2020 Tokyo Olympics eVisa: Jamaica

After the government of Japan inaugurates the program, an eVisa will be required for many people to travel to the Games. Citizens of Jamaica will most likely need an eVisa to travel to Japan.
How long does it take to get an eVisa for Japan for the 2020 Olympics?
Residents of Jamaica can choose from three processing speeds; select the right one based on how fast you want your eVisa for the Olympics to arrive.

With the Japan eVisa, how many times can I enter and exit the country?
Regular Japanese visas allow single, double or multiple entries. When the eVisa is released, the same types of entry selections will most likely be available. This selection affects the total cost of your eVisa too.
Single entry means that you can enter the country only once. Double entry allows two entries, and multiple entries allows you to enter the country as many times as you like within the duration period of your visa.

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