Are people with double citizenship eligible for the JR Pass?

JR Pass eligibility

Double nationalities
Yes, people with double citizenship are eligible for the Japan Rail Pass.

For this entry into Japan, they must enter using their non-Japanese passport in order to get the “temporary visitor” visa. This means that children of Japanese nationals with double citizenship must enter under the nationality of the non-Japanese country, different from their parents who enter under their Japanese citizenship.

Please note that a person with dual citizenship who has entered Japan using their Japanese passport will not be able to exchange their voucher by showing their unstamped non-Japanese passport.

The most important thing is to make sure you get a “temporary visitor” visa.
