Exemption of Visa (Short-Term Stay)

Important Note: Due to the global impact of the spread of COVID-19, the below-mentioned visa exemption for Barbadian nationals’ short-term stay in Japan (up to 90 days) has been temporarily suspended until further notice.
For nationals of Barbados (since April 1, 2010), visas are not required for holders of Machine-Readable Passports (MRP) or ePassports in compliance with ICAO standards. Those who do not hold an MRP or ePassport are advised to obtain a visa in advance, otherwise they will be strictly examined and may be refused entry into Japan.
