Immigration Requirement : Malaysian nationals are strongly encouraged to obtain a visa prior to entering into Japan. The visa-exemption arrangements between Japan and Malaysia have allowed Malaysian nationals who meet relevant conditions can enter into Japan without a visa for a period of stay not exceeding three(3) consecutive months. However, in order to cope with the large number of Malaysians who overstay in Japan and work illegally, the Government of Japan decided to encourage Malaysian nationals to obtain visa prior to entry into Japan in order to ensure smooth entry. Passport valid for at least six months required by all nationals. (For visa fee, please click Visa for detailed information)
