New Delhi: Japan will simplify its visa rules from January 1 next year for Indians and issue multiple-entry-visa for short-term stay.

The Japanese Embassy said in New Delhi today that the move is expected to benefit tourists and business persons as well as repeat visitors.

The relaxed visa regime will not only have simplification of visa application documents but also expansion of scope of eligible applicants, it said.

Under the simplification of visa application documents, the applicant’s employment certificate and explanation letter stating the reason will be exempted in cases of applying for multiple-entry-visa.

Multiple entry visas with a validity of 5 years maximum and stay of 90 days maximum will be issued to applicants who have travel records to Japan twice or more in the last one year.
