How To: Japan Visa On Pakistani Passport


Applying for Japan visa on a Pakistani passport is so easy that it makes me wonder why do people not visit there as frequently as they do to other destinations. I got mine in 5 days without any hassle or difficulty. Disclaimer: Although this guide does not guarantee any one a visa but it will answer all the questions you may have regarding the process.


  • Hotel bookings
    Reserve free-cancellation, no pre-payment accommodation, this does not need to be actual reservation, if you like you can change these later.
  • Return air ticket booking
    Get a dummy reservation from a travel agent or book a ticket confirmation that is held for 24/48 hours, take a print out and use it.
  • Itinerary
    Download the form and fill it with your day by day plan. The form is simple, only asks you to fill in your activity for the day and the whereabouts of your accommodation. Even if you haven’t finalized an itinerary, just find the key places to visit in the cities you are visiting and mention them.
  • 6-month bank statement & account maintenance letter
    If you are financing your own trip then this has to be your own statement, otherwise it will be of whoever is your sponsor. Make sure that the amount you are showing in your bank statement makes logical sense based on your ticket price, hotel bookings and the estimated daily expenses during your stay. Tokyo is one of the most expensive cities of the world, plan accordingly.
  • Letter from employer, verifying your occupation
    This letter needs to state your position, designation, NIC number, salary and the time since you are working at the said company; signed by your employer, basically confirming that you actually work where you are saying you do.
  • No objection certificate from your employer
    This second letter from your employer needs to state that your leaves for traveling have been approved and they have no issue. Also, mention the days and dates your leave is sanctioned for.
  • Passport
    Current & all previous passports, no photocopy required
  • Original ID card & 1 photocopy
    This will only be used to enter the embassy, they will not keep only the copy not the original.
  • Filled visa application form
    Download the form, it is a very simple two-page document, if you need clarity on any question, dial their number and they will be happy to help.
  • One photo pasted on the form
    Photo requirements are basic. If you have a photo that is slightly bigger than the box on the form, they will not mind you using it.


  1. What is the fee? There is no visa fee
  2. How many days does it take? 5 working days
  3. Do they call for an interview? usually no, but they may
  4. Do they give a reason for refusal? No
  5. When can I re-apply if is rejected? After 6 months
  6. What is the validity period? 3 months from the date of issue
  7. How many days of entry do they give? As per your itinerary
  8. How to submit the documentsNo travel agent required, one of the applicants can go and submit on behalf of every other applicant


Timings: Monday to Friday between 10am-12noon for documents submission and 2:30-5:30pm for collection
Embassy Address

  • Karachi: 6/2 Civil Lines, Abdullah Haroon Road, Karachi, 75530 (right beside Frere Hall)

    It’s so surprising that there’s no visa fee for Japan. I haven’t ever been to Japan but my dad went there on a business trip several years ago. However, I wasn’t aware about the absence of the visa fee. How cool!

    Hey Anam, I will be traveling to Osaka, Japan in 1st week of April to attend a conference. While looking on internet how to get Japanese visa, I bumped into your blog. It’s so inspiring and refreshing to a see Pakistani girl like you. I too have an adventurous and beautiful three years of independent life in Kuala Lumpur while pursuing higher education with little amount of money I saved from a small salary and taking a risk to enroll in a program for which I had tuition fee of one semester only. An experience everyone keeps on telling me that I should share with the world by writing. Anyhow, I am just curious to know why you picked Japan this time because every destination you pick has a reason/attraction for you. What was your attraction for Japan that took you there?

    • gwgp December 8, 2017 at 4:33 pm - Reply

      Hey Ayesha. It is so refreshing to meet a like minded adventurer soul, specially a woman. If you have enough travel stories/experiences, write them away! And as you will write, you’ll re-live those memories. And you can come back to it and it in future and will be feel like the whole thing flash back infront of your eyes. So yea, it won’t just be for others, but very much for yourself as well. That is how I started.

      And Japan. oh well. In 2013 I came across a Tokyo documentary by the famous celebrity chef-cum-traveler I saw it, and since then Japan was on my list as a special destination. I think the crazy wild and unique character of this place drew me. This year I turned 30 and it was time for a special trip. And hence Japan happened. 🙂

      It is nothing you need to download from.

Thats it. That’s your itinerary…. what will you be doing on what date and where will you be staying.

    Hi Anam. As always it was refreshing to read your blog about Japan. You girl are quite an inspiration!
    So I have one small query and thought you might be able to guide. I’m planning to visit Japan next month and had spoken to my travel agent /consultant earlier today. He mentioned the requirement of an NTN certificate along with the rest of the documents you’d mentioned. This is a bit of a glitch since I don’t have it. Could you tell me if that was actually required since i didn’t come across it in your list of documents. Would appreciate your help. Thanks!

    • gwgp April 4, 2018 at 12:08 am - Reply

      Glad you asked. So I went without it because it wasnt there in list of docs required. But the guy who was taking my application form asked me if I my tax challans (not NTN certificate). I told him, I dont have it right now but I can bring it. He said call us tomorrow, and we will tell you whether we want you to bring it or not. And when I called next day, they said we dont need it. So may be it varies case to case basis. They need it from some people. If you dont have your NTN you can still go without it, I dont think they would need it UNLESS you are a business owner. I am not. And if you are employed somwhere, they may ask for your tax challans.

    Dear Anam,

    I hope you’re doing well and thank you for writing this and many other wonderful articles on your website. I came across your website yesterday whilst searching for something on Google and have been hooked to it ever since then.

    I read through this rather popular article of yours since I am planning to go to Japan in a month’s time and had a few questions to ask from you. I’ll be really thankful to you if you can answer them. First of all, inside the application form, there’s a section for ‘Guarantor or reference in Japan’. As a part of the requirements, it’s mentioned that this is not required for a tourist visa so should I just leave this part unfilled?

    Also, I am not sure about this but if you applied as an employed person bearing the expenses of the trip yourself, did you attach your salary slips along with the application?

    Looking forward to hear from you. Thank you.

    • Anam May 19, 2018 at 11:39 am - Reply

      Leave the guarantor section, its not needed for tourist visa.
      Salary slips are also not required. But there is no harm if you give them.

      there is not “guarantee” required. Only the bank documents of the person paying for your trip. If that is you yourself, then you need to give your bank documents.

      Job or no job, you must show bank details of who ever is paying for this trip. And obviously your relation to that person. And your case is unique, if you are a student and have a Japanese wife living in Japan, you may be eligible for some kind of a spouse visa, like a lot of other countries do. Best is that you call the Japanese embassy in Pakistan and ask them about your case or ask your wife to get this information for you from Japan.

    we have little same case as you

    actually my younger sister aged 24 willing to visit japan on tourist visa, she unmarried and unemployed and she have own enough money in her own bank accounts around 1 million PKR as well as funds in Govt National Saving Certificates
    she finicially supported by her family members (siblings) and Parents

    so want know that as she so young and single unmarried and have NO job and NO NTN or NO any previous travel history so she STILL able to get japan tourist visa approval?

    by the way which other countries you also visited too? like singapore malaysia europe uk etc?
    we are karachi based

      father’s bank account statement, account maintenance certificate. his company registration, ntn, tax return.
      Just for your info. You will have a higher chance at Japanese visa if you have a little bit of travel history.

          Hey Faheem, you can apply for a tourist visa and visit Japan. But mind you, they do consider travel history. So it will help if you have visited several countries.

      you can fill someone’s form and help collect their documents but to submit applications or one of the applicants have to go to submit. But if there is some sort of a medical issue due to which the applicant can’t submit you can call them and ask.

    Hello Anam,

    You mentioned in one of the above answers to a comment that Rs.200,000 would be required for 10 days, I have following questions:
    1. Does that amount include the ticket price as well or is it after arrival expense?
    2. Did you plan this trip exclusively to visit Japan or did you included other countries on the way?
    3. Is it possible to get the details of the visit, the itinerary where you visited?
    4. Which cities did you visited there and which was the most beautiful or you can say that was the highlight of your trip.
