Visa Application

Generally, when applying for a visa, each applicant is requested to submit some documents. Each country has a different policy for visa application; therefore, the applicant should ask the Japanese Embassy in his or her home country if a visa is required and which documents are needed. The applicant should then inform the registration secretariat (APTS2017 Travel Desk: apts2017@ntaoka.co.jp +81-98-860-9944) of the documents that are needed to apply for a visa. Please note that the applicant is required to make registration for 2nd Congress of Asia-Pacific Society of Thyroid Surgery. After confirming the applicant’s information, the secretariat will send a Reply Form for Visa Application to him or her directly.
It will take more than three months for the visa application procedure depending on the country.
