MULTIPLE ENTRY Japan Visa for Filipino Tourists: Tips and How To Get It Done

This blog discusses on how to apply for multiple entry Japan visa without visiting friends or relatives, just plain tourist.

After carefully deliberating which “agency” to choose in processing for Japan visa, I remember to reach out to an excellent service I experienced last 2017. I couraged myself that we’ll (as a family) opt to apply for multiple entry. Regarding the requirement, you have to at least visited Japan once or travelled to the G7 countries. Or if you are someone with high financial capacity or a spouse of — which I am not sure how much is considered high “enough” 😬

G7 countries are the following: Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States. I haven’t been to the G7 countries but had visited Europe twice which in my mind to take the risk. Anway, the worst thing will happen is a single entry visa, right?

  • Always do your due diligence and transact only through these accredited agencies.
  • Full list of the requirement including Visa Form, Itinerary in Japan, Letter of Guarantee, Multiple-Entry Request Form
  • As someone who values time, PSA Helpline is a life-saver. If you don’t have extra help or have to bring the kids wherever you go, save yourself and avail of this service. Response time is under 48 hours with the documents processed.
  • For people who cannot provide an ITR, here’s a blog link to check out.
  • In a family application, one PSA copy will suffice for possible duplicate requirements (e.g. marriage).
  • Provide bank certificates individually and if you have a joint account, please do provide more. Some may call it unnecessary, but if you want to convince the Consul, go all in! Anyway, if you are given a 10-year multiple entry, it is worth every penny and sweat spent.
  • If possible, insert credit card statements (individually). Always treat your credit card like a debit card. Credit isn’t bad if used in the right way.
  • If you have a previous Japan visa (on a different passport), include it along with the current passport.
  • Remember, three years ago it was pandemic where the world shut down. If you visited Japan before 2020, don’t be afraid and try to apply 😉

I’m saying this as a customer (not sponsored post), Universal Holidays took three days to process the visa: ₱1500 Processing Fee and ₱100 Courier

In the past (before pandemic era), it is more financially risky as Japan needs confirmed flight tickets and hotel reservations.
