Saudi Arabian citizens planning on visiting Japan can now apply for a Japan eVisa online. This is a new way of applying for this visa and means that time-consuming visits to embassies or consulates are no longer part of the application process. Instead, the entire application can be done from the comfort of your home.
The online visa application process is easy and it does not take much time for Saudi applicants to complete the Japan eVisa form and submit an application.
Until the Japanese eVisa for travelers from Saudi Arabia is launched, visas are available from Japan’s diplomatic missions (embassies and consulates) around the world. Travelers must apply in person. The eVisa is expected to speed up and streamline the application process.
After Japan implements its eVisa system, Saudi nationals who plan to stay in the country in the long term (for example, to live or work there) will require a type of visa that can only be issued by an embassy. Japanese residence visas and working visas for Saudi Arabian nationals are not expected to be available as eVisas.
