Japan now allows online e-visas for these Muslim countries

Saudi Arabians, citizens of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and citizens of Qatar—all Muslim nations—can now easily and comfortably obtain a visa for Japan. With the implementation of the most recent e-visa rules and the establishment of a new online tourist visa system by the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, travelling to Japan has become much simpler. The system would also be available to residents of Brazil, the United Kingdom, the United States, Cambodia, Canada, Mongolia, Taiwan, Singapore, and South Africa.

The new restrictions have made the visa application procedure seamless, even though it was previously smooth. Applicants from the UAE and Saudi Arabia must submit their applications through the specific website, and after a successful submission, they will receive a digital confirmation visa.

Qatari nationals can apply to get their passports registered at Japanese Embassies, Consulate-Generals, or Consulates. After registering, they will receive a “Visa Waiver Registration” seal for their passport, allowing them to enter Japan on a number of short-term visits without obtaining a visa for a period of three years (or until their passports expire).

The easing of social distance protocols around the world is luring more and more nations to relax their visa requirements in order to benefit from the global travel boom. Japan appears to have been drawn in by the same idea in order to make it easier for citizens of Muslim-majority nations to travel there.
