Applying for a Japanese passport


In principle, applications must be made at the Embassy in person, but if you are unable to come to the Embassy, the application may be made by proxy. In this case, the application form should already be signed by the applicant and the proxy must bring their own photo ID.


The applicant must visit the Embassy to collect their passport. This includes infants and new-borns.
Passports must be collected within 6 months from the date the application was submitted.

Processing Time

It takes 5 working days to issue a passport.

Applicants under 20 years of age

If you are under 20 years old, a signature from a legal representative (eg. one of your parents) is required on the second page of the application form. If your legal representative cannot write on the application form, you can use the letter of consent and submit it with the application form.
