For holders of valid visas issued before April 3rd 2020, who have not yet entered Japan (ATT: working holiday)
If you were issued a visa before April 3rd 2020, and have not yet entered Japan, and the visa is still valid, you will need a Written Pledge to enter Japan.
Specifically, working holiday visa holders in this situation will need a Written Pledge to cover their COVID-19 related risks.
The Written Pledge must be filled out by a company or registered organization, not an individual. For more details about the Written Pledge, please see this page.
You can also contact us for more details at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 02 6273 3244.
If you are holding another valid visa (such as a multiple entry visa), please contact the Embassy or Consulate where you applied to check if you need a Written Pledge or any other document before entering Japan.
