Enrollment (for members living outside Japan who are not JALCARD members)

Notice

As a special measure in response to the changes to the JAL Global Club program made in association with the introduction of the JAL Life Status Program, the deduction of the 2,000 miles renewal fee will be waived for the 2024 service year (March 2024 renewal).

JAL Global Club (JGC) is an exclusive membership program that offers special services and benefits to experienced travelers who have supported the JAL Group.

    For members with a JALCARD CLUB-A Card, CLUB-A Gold Card, JAL Diners Card, or JAL Platinum Card, the deduction of 5,000 miles at initial registration will be waived as this amount is covered by the JALCARD annual fee.
