- China
- India
- Russia
- Ukraine 
- Brazil

If you require a visa to travel to Japan, please carefully read the instructions HERE <https://www.openstack.org/summit/tokyo-2015/tokyo-and-travel/#visa>. The entire visa process can take up to 5 weeks to complete so APPLY NOW. 
1. First, you will need to have booked your flights, hotel accommodation, and Summit registration BEFORE applying for visa invitation support.
2. Then complete the visa request form on the Summit Tokyo and Travel Page HERE <https://www.openstack.org/summit/tokyo-2015/tokyo-and-travel/#visa>. 
3. Receive a hardcopy of your visa invitation documents in the mail and apply for a visa at your local Japanese embassy or consulate
4. Wait for your visa to be issued, which may take up to 10 business days and pick it up from the embassy
