In April 2020, Japan will start issuing electronic visas, which comes as great news given the fact that the Olympic and Paralympic Games of 2020 will be held in Tokyo. Millions of tourists are scheduled to arrive in Japan, and while there are 66 visa-exempt nationalities, not all attendees will come from visa-exempt countries. While we do not know which nationalities will be eligible for the Japan eVisa, we do know that Chinese citizens will be the first to have access to one.
Unfortunately, the Japanese government has not released the details of the Japan eVisa yet. Is the Japan e-Visa for the citizens of China a multiple-entry visa? We have no way of knowing at the moment because the official guidelines have not been released. However, there is some information circulating online that says the Japan eVisa will be a single-entry visa, allowing its holder to stay in Japan for no longer than 30 days. We recommend that you do not trust this information since it is pure speculation at this point. All you can do is wait for the guidelines to be released. When that happens, we will be more than happy to share with you 100% accurate information.
How is iVisa getting ready for the Japan eVisa?
While iVisa does not have any more information than you do, we are making progress in preparing a smooth and stress-free online application form. After all, as soon as the visa goes live, we want to help you get the travel document you need with minimal effort.
The online application form that you must fill in to obtain a Japan eVisa for the citizens of China will be short and to the point. It will consist of two simple steps, and it should not take you more than 20 minutes to complete. Plus, if you have any questions, you can always reach iVisa’s customer support, offered 24/7 and entirely free of charge.
The first step of the application form will consist of general information. You will have to provide iVisa with a wide range of details such as name, address, nationality, phone number, and so on. Passport info and travel details will also be required. At this point, you will also need to choose a processing speed for your application, a factor that will determine the cost of your Japan eVisa. In the second step, you will need to provide payment using a credit/debit card, PayPal, Alipay, or WeChat. You must also carefully review your form to make sure that all the information given is 100% accurate. Once all of that is finished, you are free to submit your form, and the Japan eVisa will arrive via e-mail in the timeframe of your choosing.
We regret that we cannot provide more information on the Japan eVisa for the citizens of China at the moment. As soon as new information comes to light, we will be sure to update you. In the meantime, do not forget to check back with us soon.
