Exemption of Visa Fee for Foreigners Visiting the 2005 World Exposition, Aichi, Japan

February 22, 2005

  1. The Government of Japan will exempt the commission fee for Temporary Visitor's visas which will be issued between February 25 (about 1 month prior to the start of the exposition) and September 25 (the last day of the exposition), for those who will be coming to Japan on short-term stay with a purpose that includes a visit to the 2005 World Exposition, Aichi, Japan.

  2. This measure will be implemented, in light of similar cases in the past, to invite overseas visitors to the 2005 World Exposition and is expected to promote visits from overseas, especially from neighboring Asian countries.
