New Delhi: As announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, visa-on-arrival for Japanese nationals is being launched on 1 March. This facility will be available at 6 airports: Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Bangalore and Hyderabad. This facility can be availed for the purposes of business, tourism, conference and medical. This visa will stay vaild after entry for a period of 30 days.

About 1.80 lakh Japanese nationals visit India every year on different 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 the MHA’s website.

During the visit of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to India in December last year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced that India will extend ‘Visa on arrival’ to Japanese citizens from 1 March of this year.
