Need a Visa?

PGL welcomes participants from around the world, yet we are not an officially sanctioned organization, and therefore cannot serve as your guarantor.

Nevertheless, we will work with verified international presenters to assist you in the process of applying for your visa to Japan.

Please read and be familiar with the regulations according to the Japan Ministry of Foreign Affairs found on the following website.

Contact your local Japan embassy to secure the necessary applications and be briefed on the procedures to apply for your visa.

Sample forms can be downloaded here:

Local embassy information can be found here:

In most cases those coming from countries having visa agreements with Japan are issued a visa with little problems. Yet if you are from a nation that demands greater verification please become aware of the time and effort that may be necessary to secure your visa.

For those of you in need of a printable letter of invitation, the downloadable generic letter is provided and notarised by Dr. John T. Denny, the Conference Chair for PGLIII.

We apologize as we are unable to attend to further requests (especially via mail or fax) for invitation letters or other supporting documents.
