Visa on Arrival for Japanese nationals
About 1.80 lakh Japanese nationals visit India every year on various kinds of visas. Business and Tourist Visas constitute around 78% of these. On an average 600 Japanese nationals arrive at Delhi Airport daily. It is expected that extension of this facility to Japanese nationals will further strengthen the business and tourism ties between the two countries.
Detailed circulars pertaining to this subject have already been put on MHA’s website.
During the visit of Japanese Prime Minister Mr Shinzo Abe to India during December last year, the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi had announced that India will extend ‘Visa on arrival’ to Japanese citizens from 1st March 2016.
