  1. How do I process through Japanese Immigration at Kadena?
    1. All non-SOFA passengers arriving in Japan MUST process through Government of Japan Immigration and Customs (GPS: N 26 21.786 E127 45.354) regardless of how short your stay may be in JapanUNLESS you are a through-load passenger on a flight and re-boarding is imminent. If you are selected for a flight from Kadena to another location in Japan and are terminating in Japan, you do not have to go to immigration.
    2. If you are selected for a flight going outside of Japan, you must process through Japanese immigration. The immigration office is located outside Kadena Gate 4 (closed) which is the Navy side so you have to go out of gate 1 and drive along side Highway 58. For purposes of getting stamped in and out of the country, the office is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
    3. Upon arrival in Japan, Security Forces will drive you to Customs and Immigration but upon departure, you must find your own way to the Immigration Office. You'll need your boarding pass, passport and departure slip to get stamped out of the country. Since it's takes at least 30 to 40 minutes (to get there, get processed and return to the terminal) you may want to consider hiring an on-base taxi to take you back and forth to the Immigration office. Taxi cost is 3000 yen or $40.00 (round trip) (As of June 2011)
    4. Again, the above-mentioned procedures apply to non-SOFA passengers (which means most Space-A pax not stationed in Japan).
