Japan to issue multiple entry visa to Indians for short stay

New Delhi, July 3 Japan will issue multiple entry visas for short term stay of Indians from July 3 onwards, the embassy of Japan here said Thursday.

“The government of Japan has decided to begin issuance of multiple entry visas for the short term stay of the Indian nationals (ordinary passport holders) from July 3,” a statement from the embassy of Japan in New Delhi said.

The decision was taken following an announcement by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe when he visited India this January that Japan would introduce multiple entry visas.

“This is based on the recognition that the enhancement of people to people exchanges is important in order to further broaden relations between Japan and India,” added the statement.
