For those who are excited like me, here’s the latest pubic announcement from the Embassy of Japan website about the lift of visa requirements to the Philippines, Indonesia and Vietnam. False Alarm, guys… :P
Recently, false news have been circulating regarding the Japanese Visa for nationals of the Philippines, Indonesia and Viet Nam. The news mentioned that Japan has lifted its Visa for the Philippines, Indonesian and Vietnamese.
The Embassy/ Consular office/ of Japan in the Philippines would like to clarify to the public that Japan has not lifted the visa requirements for nationals of the Philippines, Indonesia and Viet Nam contrary to the recent reports. However, Japan has opened multiple-entry Visas to nationals of the Philippines, Indonesia and Viet Nam. (Japan will continue to accept and deliver Visa applications for Japan through accredited agencies.)
For details about the Visa application and issuance of multiple-entry Visa please refer to the information at: (http://www.ph.emb-japan.go.jp)
