All japan rail passes has to be sent out physically. Please allow atleast 14 days of shipping incase of any unexpected delays. If an order is placed too close to your departure date and we estimate a delivaery date after your departure , a refund will be issued minus the cost for transactions fees of 1.5% per transaction as well as a 25 EUR handling fee.
It is very important that Japanese citizens have obtained a certificate from the Japanese Embassy before purchasing their JR Pass. Children can have their names written in the parents family certificate. All Japanese citizens over the age of 12 must have their own certificate, even if they have lived abroad all their life. This must be issued BEFORE your JR Pass can be ordered from us.
Non-Japanese travelers can ignore this and do not need a certificate from the embassy, you will instead receive a visa-stamp in your passport when you arrive in Japan.
It’s very important that your name is written EXACTLY as in your passport, including all the names and in the proper order. Special letters are not allowed. Names such as Björn are written as Bjoern like in your passport.
The JR Pass must be activated within 90 days from the order date. Make sure not to order your pass too far in advance as they can only be activated 3 months after ordering and are denied echange on the spot in Japan if it has expired. We therefore recommend that you order your JR Pass about 4 weeks before the planned departure.
