Japan relaxes multiple-entry visa norms for Indian nationals from Jan 1, 2018

Japan has now announced simplified visa procedures for Indian travellers with effect from January 1, 2018. The relaxed visa regime will not only have simplification of visa application documents, but also expansion of scope of the eligible applicants for multiple entry-visa for short-term stay.

Under the simplification of visa application documents, the applicant’s employment certificate and explanation letter stating the reason will be exempted in cases of applying for multiple- entry visa. In principle, applicants will be able to apply for multiple-entry visa with only three documents –passport, visa application form (with Photo) and documents to prove the financial capability (for tourism purpose)/documents to prove the applicants affiliation to certain enterprises (for business purpose).

Moreover, multiple-entry visas with a validity of 5 years maximum and stay of 90 days maximum will be issued to applicants who have travel records to Japan twice or more in the last one year, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan said, adding in this case, the eligible applicants may submit only their passports and visa application form.

In February this year, the Government of Japan introduced the simplification of visa application procedure for single-entry visa for Indian students to promote visit of youths to Japan. By this relaxation, Indian students, graduate students and alumni of universities in India may submit certificate of student status or graduation instead of the document to prove financial capability in the application for single entry visa for short-term stay.
