Citizens from around 180 countries require a Japanese visa to enter the coutnry, no matter the length of the intended stay or travel purpose. If you are an Indonesian passport holder, you will require a visa to enter Japan regardless of the motive of your trip.
At the moment, it is necessary for Indonesian citizens to apply for a visa for Japan from the nearest Japanese embassy or consulate in their country of residence. However, this will soon change with the introduction of an electronic visa for Japan (eVisa), expected to be implemented in the near future.
Once introduced, the Japan eVisa will eliminate the need for Indonesian nationals to travel to a Japanese diplomatic mission in person.
The process will take place exclusively online and can be completed in minutes, making the online application quick and straightforward to submit.
