Do Mongolian citizens need an eVisa for Japan?

Mongolians do not have visa-free entry to Japan. If you reside in Mongolia or hold Mongolian citizenship but currently live in another country, you must have a visa for Japan. We recommend using our user-friendly Visa Checker Tool, which considers your nationality and the purpose of your travel to find out exact visa requirements.

Minors or children from Mongolia also need to obtain a Japanese visa for entry into the country. In such cases, their legal guardians or parents are responsible for completing the visa application process on their behalf.

Additional documents, such as a birth certificate or a letter of consent from the non-accompanying parent, may be necessary to facilitate the visa application.

What is the Japan eVisa for Mongolian citizens?

The Japanese government has recently introduced the Japan eVisa, an electronic visa system designed for eligible foreign travelers planning to visit Japan for tourism or business purposes.

This cutting-edge system offers the convenience of completing the entire visa application process online, eliminating the need for traditional paper applications or visiting a Japanese embassy or consulate. With the Japan eVisa, you can easily apply for and obtain your visa from the comfort of your home.

Upon receiving the Japan eVisa issuance notice, visa holders have 90 days to enter Japan. This visa is valid for a single entry and allows for a maximum stay of 90 days Per Entry in the country.

It is important to note that while the Japan eVisa facilitates tourism and business visits, it does not grant permission for work, long-term study, or residency in Japan.

Japan eVisa: Document requirements for citizens from Mongolia

To fill out the visa application form for the Japan eVisa as a Mongolian passport holder, you must have the following visa requirements:

  • Valid passport: Make sure the passport validity is at least six months beyond your intended stay in Japan and at least two blank stamp pages.

  • Travel itinerary: You need to provide details regarding your planned itinerary, including the dates of your arrival and departure, the address of your accommodation in Japan, and any planned activities in the country.

  • Employment information: If your travel purpose is business, you may be asked to submit information about your employer, including the company name, your position in the organization, and the exact purpose of your visit.

  • Proof of sufficient funds: You must show that you have enough funds to cover your expenses throughout your stay in Japan through recent bank statements or any other evidence indicating your financial means.

  • Passport photo: Get a government-compliant photo from the comfort of your home using our easy and affordable digital photo service.

By meeting these visa requirements, you’re well-prepared to apply for the Japan eVisa and your journey to this beautiful country.

However, they are required to demonstrate that they have sufficient funds to support their expenses during their stay in Japan. This includes covering costs for accommodation, transportation, meals, activities outlined in their travel itinerary, and other daily necessities.

To meet the financial means requirement, applicants may be asked to provide various documents as evidence of their financial situation. These documents may include bank statements, proof of employment or income, a letter from a Japanese sponsor, or other supporting materials demonstrating their ability to finance their stay in Japan.

  • Japan Tourist Visa: Mongolians also have the option to choose the traditional paper visa application process specifically for tourism purposes (not business). This visa requires applicants to apply in person at the Japanese Embassy or Consulate in Mongolia.

The Japanese government determines the validity of this visa upon submission, which can range from 15 to 30 days, depending on the travel plans and purpose.

We are here to assist you in obtaining your paper visa for Japan! When you apply through our services, you gain access to a team of experts who will provide guidance, a simplified application form, and a complete step-by-step guide.

  • Long-term Japan Visas: For individuals seeking work, study, or residency opportunities in Japan, applying for a work/study visa or residence permit in person is mandatory. Specific conditions apply, and only foreign nationals who can provide additional supporting documents to prove their eligibility are eligible to apply.

For more detailed information about long-stay visas and eligible applicants, we recommend referring to the official Japanese government website at the government website.
