Japan is one of Asia’s most visited destination. Most tourist alike are fascinated by Japan natural beauty, history, food and technology.


To visit Japan, citizens from other countries need to secure a Visa first and Philippine Passport holders are included on the list.

Here I will share to you my experience on getting a Japan Tourist Visa ( Single Entry).

REMINDER: This may only applies for Filipinos Working or Living in Hongkong / Macau and strictly for TOURISM.

Please be informed that if you are holding a valid working permit in Macau (the “Blue Card“), you are eligible to apply at Japan Visa application Centre.



Two ways to apply a Japanese Visa.
