Japan has simplified visa requirements for short-term stays of Ukrainians


"On the occasion of the Japan-Ukraine Conference on the Reconstruction of Ukraine, the process of easing visa requirements for short-term stays of Ukrainian citizens (ordinary passport holders) in Japan will begin in order to further develop bilateral relations, including cultural exchange. The date of implementation and other details are currently being considered," the statement said.

Who will benefit from the easing of visa requirements:


• Representatives of Ukrainian companies participating in joint projects with Japan will be eligible for multiple-entry visas for short-term business stays. In addition, the requirements for previous trips to Japan will be relaxed.


• Relatives of Ukrainians who evacuated to Japan will also be able to obtain multiple-entry visas for short-term visits.


• Multiple-entry visas will be granted to high-income individuals and their family members. These visas will be valid for 5 years and will allow them to stay in Japan for up to 90 days per visit.


The respective changes in the visa regime are aimed at facilitating conditions for Ukrainian businessmen and relatives staying in Japan.

We remind you! Earlier, we wrote that the British government has suspended one of the key programs for Ukrainian refugees. This step creates a need for Ukrainians to look for alternative ways to stay in the country legally. Learn more about the closure of the Ukraine Family Scheme and what programs remain available.
