Millennium Post - - FRONT PAGE -

NEW DELHI: Ja­pan will sim­plify its visa rules from Jan­uary 1 next year for In­di­ans and is­sue mul­ti­ple- en­try-visa for a short-term stay, a move which is ex­pected to ben­e­fit tourists and busi­ness per­sons as well as re­peat vis­i­tors, the Ja­panese em­bassy said on Tues­day.

The re­laxed visa regime will have not only a sim­pli­fi­ca­tion of visa ap­pli­ca­tion doc­u­ments but also an ex­pan­sion of the scope of el­i­gi­ble ap­pli­cants, it said.

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 pa­pers to prove the fi­nan­cial ca­pa­bil­ity (for tourism pur­pose)/doc­u­ments to prove the ap­pli­cants af­fil­i­a­tion to cer­tain en­ter­prises (for busi­ness pur­pose),” said the Ja­panese for­eign min­istry re­lease, which was is­sued by the em­bassy here.
