Japan e-Visa for the citizens of China - cost and processing time

Japan e-Visa for the citizens of China - cost and processing time

iVisa | Updated on Jan 24, 2022

In 2020, Japan is planning to introduce an electronic system into its visa policy. That comes as good news, since the Olympic and Paralympic Games will be held in Tokyo next year, and millions of tourists will attend. There are currently 66 visa-exempt nationalities, but all others will need to obtain a visa.


Chinese citizens will have access to the Japan eVisa first, which should be available soon. Unfortunately, we do not have much information about it at the moment because the Japanese government has not released any details yet. So, if you are wondering what the Japan eVisa will cost, we are afraid that we cannot provide you with that information for the time being.

Nevertheless, we can give you some ideas about how iVisa will determine the cost of the Japan e-Visa for the citizens of China. First of all, when you use iVisa as your visa service, the cost of your eVisa depends on the processing speed you choose for your application. Usually, there are three options you can pick from:

  • Standard
  • Rush
  • Super Rush

As you can imagine, they get increasingly faster and also more expensive. The cost of the Japan e-Visa for the citizens of China is determined by the processing speed. Needless to say, the faster you want to have your application processed, the more you will need to pay.

The cost of the eVisa itself remains the same in all three cases. Only the service fee charged by iVisa increases with each processing time option.

In order to pay for your Japan e-Visa for the citizens of China, iVisa offers flexible options. You can pay using a credit or debit card, but you can also use PayPal, Alipay, and WeChat. Whichever is most convenient for you.

iVisa has never and never will practice hidden costs or surcharges. The amount displayed on your screen during the application will be exactly the amount that appears on your credit card statement. We will notify you before any additional charge is imposed, although that never really happens.

We regret that we cannot be of more help at the moment. The official bylaws of the Japan e-Visa for the citizens of China have not been published yet, so we know as much as you do. As soon as more information becomes available, we will be more than happy to share it with you, including details about the cost and processing time. In the meantime, we are getting ready to provide a smooth and accessible online application process for when the Japan eVisa goes live.
