Frequently Asked Questions | 2020 Tokyo Olympics e-Visa: Ghana

After the government of Japan inaugurates the program, an e-Visa will be required for many people to travel to the Games. Citizens of Ghana will most likely need an e-Visa to travel to Japan.

How long does it take to get an e-Visa for Japan for the 2020 Olympics?

Residents of Ghana can choose from three processing speeds; select the right one based on how fast you want your e-Visa for the 2020 Games to arrive.

Regular Japanese visas allow single, double or multiple entry. When the e-Visa is released, the same types of entry selections will most likely be available. The selection you choose affects the total cost of your e-Visa too.
