Multiple Entry ViSA

Hi SIr/Mam,

Im visiting Japan for the second time as such our embassy grant me the MULTIPLE ENTRY VISA status for 5 years. I red on your eligibility site that such visa are NOT anymore eligible for the JR pass is it true? So JR pass are only eligible for first time visitors?


Hi there,

The JR Pass is valid for foreign visitors who enter Japan under a Tourst Visa.

Unfortunately JR has told us that Multiple Entry Visa's will not be honoured for exchanging the JR Pass.
