Japan is on the list of states whose citizens will be able to get a Saudi Arabia e-visa. There are 35 such countries, and it means that the people who want to go and visit Saudi Arabia in the near future are spared of a trip to the Saudi Arabian embassy. In this case, the near future means a few weeks. According to Saudi Arabia’s government, the electronic visa will be available starting the end of the first quarter of 2018.
The decision of releasing electronic visas for Saudi Arabia was taken as a measure to bring revenue from something other than oil. The oil prices have gone down, and Saudi Arabia seeks to enhance tourism. The discussion started as far as 2006, but now the bylaws are ready for adoption, and this time it is sure that e-visas are going to happen. As a result, the Saudi Arabia e-visa for Japanese citizens will be live in just a couple of weeks.
Nowadays, you can get almost everything online, so why would a visa be any different? A Saudi Arabia e-visa for Japanese citizens will be available on iVisa as soon as it goes live. You can use the services provided by iVisa with ease, and you will get your document as quickly as possible, just for a small charge. Here is why iVisa is the best service you can use:
Comfort – with iVisa, you do not have to take any trip to an embassy. You can apply from the comfort of your home, day or night.
Fast processing – the company offers three processing periods (usually,) for every applicant’s needs and budget. Some visa applications are processed in just 15 minutes, so you get the picture.
Simple application form – iVisa comes with two-step or three-step application forms, depending on the visa policy of the destination country. Either way, the forms are explicit and do not present anything that might put you in a tight spot.
Competitive prices – two parts make up a visa cost: the value of the actual visa and the service fee for iVisa. iVisa has no saying in how much a visa costs, but the service fee is always at the lowest on the market. Of course, the service fee depends on the processing time you choose.
Unfortunately, since the bylaws are not adopted yet, and discussions are still taking place within the Saudi government, the official guidelines have not been released. However, there is one thing we know for sure, and it regards your passport. All travelers who apply for a Saudi Arabia e-visa for Japanese citizens must be passport holders. Furthermore, the passport needs to maintain its validity for at least another 6 months from the date of departure. Other than that, we are still waiting for further news.
Even if we do now know the guidelines, we can assure you that a Saudi Arabia e-visa for Japanese citizens will be possible and easy to obtain. iVisa will work tirelessly to make your task of applying for one as easy as pie.
