Who can buy a JR Kyushu Pass?

The JR Kyushu Pass is a special ticket that is available only to travelers visiting Japan from foreign countries for sight-seeing. You are eligible to purchase a JR Kyushu Pass if you meet one of the following two conditions:

1. You are a foreign tourist visiting Japan from abroad for sight-seeing under the entry status of "temporary visitor" ( ).* Japanese living abroad cannot use this pass. "Temporary visitor" entry status, according to Japanese Immigration Law, allows a stay in Japan of 15 days or 90 days for "sight-seeing, etc." If you apply for a "stay for sight-seeing" when you enter Japan, entry personnel will stamp your passport "temporary visitor". Only persons who have a passport bearing this stamp can use a JR Kyushu Pass.

Even if you visit Japan with an Exchange Order, to be turned in for a JR Kyushu Pass, the exchange cannot be made unless you have "temporary visitor" status; if you enter Japan under any other official status, such as "trainee" or "entertainer", you can not change the Exchange Order for a JR Pass. Please note that according to strict interpretation of the Japanese Immigration Law, "temporary visitor" status differs even from other types of stays that are also for only short time periods.
