Emergency Notice

As travel options become more limited for travel from Japan to Ireland, Irish tourists and short-term visitors to Japan are encouraged to make arrangements to return to Ireland as soon as possible. Given the increasing disruption to travel from Japan and worldwide, we advise Irish citizens in Japan who wish to return to Ireland to make arrangements to do so now, and to liaise closely with travel providers on their travel plans.

Due to the COVID-19 Coronavirus outbreak and with immediate effect, the public office at the Embassy of Ireland Tokyo will be closed to visitors until further notice. Documents can be collected and delivered by courier only, from Monday to Friday between 10am and 12pm. Due to a high volume of calls, email is preferred. We will prioritise responding to urgent queries. Personal appointments will only be considered in a limited number of cases and for emergencies only. Please call +81 (0)3 3263 0695 or email first to request an appointment.

Until further notice, the Embassy will not be able to accept new visa applications. You will still be able to apply online in the normal manner, but you will not be able to complete your application process. Applications will only be processed for emergency or essential travel for medical personnel, immediate family members of Irish citizens, persons legally resident in Ireland, and persons entitled to avail of the provision of the EU Free Movement Directive. If this applies to you, complete your visa application online in the normal manner and contact the Embassy for instructions on completing your application. The visa office will contact all other applicants who have already submitted applications to advise you on next steps.
