  • In addition to the documents mentioned, our visa experts or the concerned embassy may require you to furnish additional documents to process your visa.Your cooperation in furnishing any such additional documents is essential for a positive outcome.
  • If all the documents are not ready at the time of agent visit then additional charges levied when agent visits your residence again

  • FAQ's

    You would need documents to prove kinship with the inviter (the person whom you are going to meet) eg. Birth certificate/ copy of family registry (if relatives) or photographs, letters, e-mails, bills for international phone calls, etc (for acquaintances). If the person whom you are visiting is a foregn national, they must show their passport, as well as proof of residence (residence card and certificate of residence)

    No. The person in Japan (who is inviting you) must give the applicant their documents. The applicant will submit them along with their visa application. If you have been invited, processing times for the visas will be longer as the supporting documents needed may be more than normal.

    All documents, apart from the passport that is submitted, will not be returned. That means that you must NOT provide original copies of other documents (excluding passport).

    If your visa is not approved by the Embassy, then your visa fees may be refunded. The service charges, however, may not be refundable.

    Sadly, there is no e-visa for Indians currently. Although, going through an operator such as us really helps to simplify the process to a point where it might even feel like an e-visa.

    You will need to submit both the old and the new passports. If you have more than one passport, you must submit all of them. You will need to submit photocopies of the first and last pages (biodata pages) of your current passport, though.

    Yes. The Japanese embassy rates differ between those who are Indian nationals and those who have citizenship from a different country, even if both kinds of people are living in India.

  • Be a spouse or child of the individuals with sufficient financial capacity.
  • Most of the time, these are the only documents that will be asked for.

Please contact us if you have any doubts on the details required.

    No. The Embassy does not inform of reasons for the refusal of visas.

    No. This decision is at the discretion of the visa officials, and if they feel that you will be eligible for a single-entry visa only, then that is the visa you will receive.

    You must be a (regular) employee of either:

  • A public (government) enterprise
  • A private company that is listed on the stock exchange (including the country Japan and other third countries)
  • A private company which has constant business transactions with a Japanese company that is listed on the stock exchange
