Cautions for procedures

【Handling of Japanese Translation Services for Overseas Driver’s Licenses Due to the COVID-19 Coronavirus Outbreak】
In an effort to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, we strongly recommend the application for issuing the Japanese translation for foreign driver's license by mail to protect yourself from coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
・As a general rule the instant issuance of translations offered at JAF service counters will be suspended, and the service will instead be offered only by mail.
・When sending an application to JAF by mail, all return mail shall be sent to the address in Japan noted on the application.
・We cannot accept applications or money remittances from overseas and cannot send translations overseas.

You can find the procedure of application by mail on websites below.
Transfer your country’s license to a Japanese license

For a while from April 16, 2020, service counters at JAF branches nationwide will operate with shortened business hours from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m (closed on Saturday, Sunday and National holidays)

  • JAF headquarters do not have windows to handle procedures. Please contact the branches.
