Both Indian citizens and foreign nationals residing in India qualify for the e-Visa. The application process remains similar to the previous method, requiring submission at Visa Application Centres managed by VFS Global.

However, instead of receiving a traditional visa sticker, successful applicants will obtain an electronic visa. Upon arrival at Japanese airports, travellers must present a visa issuance notice on their mobile devices.

Access to the internet is essential for this step, and only a digital visa issuance notice will be accepted in other formats like PDFs, photos, or printed copies are invalid.

This much-anticipated e-Visa system streamlines the visa application process, offering greater convenience for Indian tourists planning trips to Japan.

It marks a significant shift towards digitalization in visa services, reflecting Japan’s commitment to enhancing tourism and facilitating smoother entry procedures for visitors from India.
