Frequently Asked Questions | 2020 Tokyo Olympics eVisa: the Democratic Republic of Congo

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

Once the government of Japan finalizes the last touches to this eVisa program, an eVisa will be required for many people to travel to the Games. Citizens of the Democratic Republic of Congo 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 Democratic Republic of Congo can choose from three processing speeds; select the right one based on how fast you want your eVisa for the Games to arrive.

We offer Standard, Rush, and Super Rush processing. In less than a week or two, most eVisas will be available. If you go to the embassy for a regular visa, you will likely need to wait more to have your visa processed.

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

Regular Japanese visas allow single entry, double entry or multiple entry. When the eVisa program is released, the same types of entry selections will most likely be available. This selection affects the fees of your eVisa too.

Single entry allows you a one time entry. Double entry allows two entries, and multiple entry allows you to enter the country as many times as you like within the duration period of your eVisa.

When does the eVisa expire?

If you're going to Japan for the Tokyo Games, you'll receive a tourist visa valid for three months from the time it's issued. So you’ll need to make sure you enter the country within that validity period.
