Japan

Japan is a great travel destination for many because it is a technological hub. Here you can find advanced electronic creations such as bullet trains and the unconventional high-tech toilet.

While the country always works towards technological progress, it never forgets is traditional roots.

When it comes to Japan, your visa requirements will depend on the purpose of your travel. If you are going to the country for sightseeing, then you have to submit requirements for “Filipino Without Guarantor”. The other routes are “Filipino Visiting a Friend” and “Filipino Visiting Family”.

Since you are most likely visiting Japan to see the sights, then you will need these Filipino without guarantor documents:

  • Printed and Completed Visa Form
  • 2×2 Photo
  • Birth Certificate
  • Marriage certificate (if needed)
  • Company certificate of employment
