The Japan eVisa is specifically designed for short-term tourism purposes. It offers a single-entry option with a maximum stay of up to 90 days. With this visa, travelers can explore Japan’s rich cultural heritage, breathtaking landscapes, and vibrant cities for up to three months.

To facilitate the process, applicants must present their “visa issuance notice” on a mobile device at the airport upon arrival in Japan. Internet access is required for this step, and presenting the notice in PDF, photo, screenshot, or printed form will not be accepted.

Overall, the introduction of the Japan eVisa for Indian travelers marks a significant step forward in enhancing bilateral tourism between the two countries. Furthermore, it underscores Japan’s commitment to promoting tourism and fostering closer ties with India.
