[For Philippine passport holders]
Type of visa: Temporary visitor visa for visiting relatives (up to 3rd degree)
For your reference, kindly go first to my previous post that I published last year. This time, it’s just my mom and thank God she has been granted a visa. There’s not much change, though. Here’s the updated list of documents to be submitted.
All documents must be original unless otherwise stated.
For the relatives in Japan:
- Invitation Letter
- Guarantee Letter
- Copy of Residence Card
- Residence Certificate
- Income Certificate
- Daily Schedule in Japan
For the relatives in the Philippines:
- Philippine Passport (valid for at least 6 months)
- Visa Application Form
- Birth Certificate
Relationship (Applicant – Pinoy in Japan) Birth Certificate to be submitted Parents / Child / Brother / Sister Applicant + Filipino in Japan Aunt, Uncle – Niece, Nephew Applicant + Parents of Filipino in Japan + Filipino in Japan Niece, Nephew – Aunt, Uncle Applicant + Parents of Applicant + Filipino in Japan
NOTE: If the applicant’s BC is “late registration”, submit a baptismal certificate and school record (Form 137) from high school or elementary and School Yearbook (if possible). If you can’t provide one or both of them, write an explanation letter. My mother did it since she couldn’t give them her Form 137 this time. Also, she submitted only a copy of her baptismal certificate. Of course the reason was stated in her letter as well and they accepted it.
- Marriage Certificate
If the Filipino relative in Japan is married to a Japanese national, there are other documents to be submitted. Refer to this site.
