When is the earliest I can arrive from today's day?

If you don't have your Working Holiday Visa for Japan yet: The processing time for the Working Holiday Visa is typically around 2 weeks, but this may vary depending on factors such as the number of applications or specific circumstances. It's advisable to contact the Japanese Embassy/Consulate in your country to inquire about the current processing duration.

Before applying for the visa, you have to book your flight and travel health insurance, along with our service package, and prepare all necessary documents for the visa application. Keep in mind that you'll need to apply in person at the Japanese Embassy/Consulate, so plan your visit accordingly. Your passport will be returned to you by mail.

To ensure a smooth process, it's recommended to allow a lead time of a minimum of 3 weeks from today until your flight.

If you hold a nationality with an annual limit on the number of Working Holiday Visas issued, please check with the Japanese Embassy/Consulate to confirm if it's still possible to apply.

If you already have your Working Holiday Visa, you can arrive on the following Friday after booking with us (but please give us at least 2 days of lead time).
