PASSPORT Stamp not visitor.

I am in th US armed forces and my wife is visiting me with both our exchange orders. I have my passport with me but do not have a stamp because i came to Japan through US-Japan Status of Forces Agreement, Can I still use JR Pass without passport stamp? Its already paid.


Hi there,

I'm afraid the JR Pass can only be used by visitors to Japan under the "Temporary Visitor" visa. You can find out more on the visa rules governing it's use here:
