Am I eligible for the Japan Rail Pass?

Australian & Foreign Tourists

Travelers to Japan will be eligible for the Japan Rail Pass if they obtain the following:

  • A ‘temporary visitor’ stamp visa – This will go in your passport and obtained on arrival in to Japan for Australian passport holders. Please use a manned gate on arrival to Japan to ensure you get the stamp in your passport.
  • A passport
  • Passport-Visa


Japanese Nationals:

The pass is now unavailable to Japanese nationals with permanent residence outside of Japan.

Dual nationality holders can purchase the pass but will have to enter Japan using their Non-Japanese passport.
