The steps to take in order to acquire a Japanese e-Visa while Japan is suspending its services.

Procedures for obtaining a Japanese electronic visa.

Following the suspension of the Japanese e-visa, a new procedure:

It was sufficient for applicants to simply log into a website, complete the necessary requirements, and pay the fees (Dh80 for the majority of countries and Dh20 for Indians) in order to obtain an electronic visa.

On the other hand, according to a contact center executive working for the Japanese Consulate-General in Dubai, this online visa system has been halted in Dubai since the 27th of April.

What are the steps involved in obtaining an electronic visa for Japan?

Applicants are now required to send an email to the consulate between the hours of eight and ten in the morning on weekdays in order to get an appointment. There is a guide that the mission has issued on its website (, which outlines the information that must be included in the email.

By four o'clock in the afternoon, the consulate will respond with an appointment for the following day if an appointment has been confirmed. It is a sign that the request "was not successful" if the applicant does not receive a response; therefore, the applicant will be required to send another email request the following day.

The consulate stated in its instructions that an application would not be accepted if the travel date was "more than three months or less than two weeks at the time of application." This means that the application won't be considered.

It's just that we've had enough of trying.There were several travel businesses in Dubai that sent a large number of emails in an attempt to schedule visa appointments, but they never received a response.

According to Malou Prado, the Chief Executive Officer of MPQ Travel & Tourism, sending these emails is completely ineffective. "At first, we just continued to send these appointment requests to the embassy, but we did not receive any answer from them. We have simply become weary of making an effort.

Another travel firm, Akbar Travels UAE, has a customer service representative who stated that they used to assist locals in the process of applying for visas to Japan. "But after the e-visa suspension and because of multiple rejections, we just stopped offering the service."

It has been reported by Rashida Zahid, who is the vice president for the operations of the agency, that even the travel site has experienced the same difficulties.

Zahid stated that they were able to have visas approved two days ago, saying that they were successful. There are some people who are fortunate enough to be given a space, while others are not as fortunate.

Additionally, Rafeez had heard of a few travelers who were successful in securing appointments, but he stated that "it was very rare."

At the same time that complaints about "overtourism" have emerged in Japan, these visa issues have presented themselves. In May, the destination had more than three million visitors for the third consecutive month, according to the figures provided by the official organization. Due to the weakening of the yen, tourists from all over the world are able to take advantage of affordable travel opportunities.

Japan has consistently been a well-liked vacation spot for people coming from the United Arab Emirates.

"We've observed a consistent interest in Japan as a holiday destination, and we anticipate this trend to continue," according to Zahid, who works for
