Japan To Simplify Visa Rules for Indians by January 01, 2018

The Japanese Embassy to simplify visa application procedure for multiple-entry-visa for short-term stay for Indians by January next year.

The applicant’s employment certificate and support letter will not be required when the applicant applies for multiple-entry-visa.

The applicant will be required to carry only three documents - Passport, visa application form along with photo, documents proving financial status for the applicant applying for tourism/ applicant’s affiliation to certain enterprises for business purpose.

However, the multiple-entry-visas will be valid for a period of five years and stay up to 90 days maximum will be granted, to the applicants who have visited Japan twice or more in the last one year.

This simplification of visa application procedure would have a positive impact on the development of the Indian and Japanese economy through tourism and business.
