Changes to Methods of Visa Application and Receipt from May 9, 2022

Since the new Corona pandemic, we have been accepting visa applications only by e-mail, but with the partial relaxation of Japan's water border measures, we are now receiving a very large number of applications.

Therefore, from May 9, 2022 until further notice from the Consulate-General of Japan at Seattle, we will only accept visa applications by mail or by dropping them off at the drop-off box located in the Consulate-General of Japan at Seattle office (available only when the Consulate-General is open).  
After that date, visa applications submitted by e-mail will NOT be accepted. Visa receipt will also be mailed with a self-addressed envelope.
