My Application for Japan Multiple Entry Visa is Granted!

Below information is applicable for Philippine Citizens only. 

I read a few blogs and in forums that on your 2nd application you can already apply for a Multiple Entry (ME) Visa.  So I tried it myself. 

Here’s the timeline:

October 17:

  • 11:30 AM: I borrowed money from friends to raise P 100 000.
  • 2:00PM: I went to BPI to ask for Bank Certificate. I used my payroll account. I was issued a bank certificate.
  • 3:00 PM: I returned the money to my friends.

October 18:

  • My bank account is now P 0.00
  • 3:00 PM I went to Reli Tours
  • 4:00 PM I was able to submit my requirements.

October 25:

  • Reli Tours texted me that my passport is ready for pick-up.

October 26:

  • I feel so blessed. I was granted a ME Visa to Japan. 🙂

Requirements:

  1. Passport
  2. Visa Application Form 
  3. Photo (1pc, 4.5cm x 4.5cm, White background)
  4. Daily Schedule in Japan
  5. Bank Certificate
  6. ITR
  7. PSA Birth Certificate *I did not submit a PSA Birth Certificate because this is not required for visa renewal*
  8. COE *Optional*
  9. Plane Ticket *Optional*
  10. Multiple Entry Visa Application form-I asked the staff of Reli Tours for the ME form. I just filled out the Explanation box and signed it.

P.S. For updated details regarding Japanese Visas, visit the Embassy of Japan in the Philippines and go to Visa/Consular Services page.

  • Passport: My passport will be expiring in December 2020.
  • Visa Application Form (I used the Reli Tours form, so it was handwritten, I had several errors but you can just put two lines on it, and make amendments.).
  • Photo: There should be no edits, so I chose Kodak.
  • Daily Schedule in Japan: Check below for my sample itineraries below for Japan Fall 2019
  • Bank Certificate: I used my payroll account that was opened in June 2013 with a current amount of P101 000.
  • My Employment Background: I am with the company for 6 years and 4 months. 
  • Plane ticket: I just submitted my one-way ticket to Tokyo.
  • Multiple Entry form: I asked the staff from Reli Tours. In the explanation box, I stated that “I wanted to see the outskirts of Japan on different seasons. Mt. Fuji is one of my goals in Summer 2020.” with a signature on the form.
