Japan does not only have the most powerful passport as per the Henley Passport Index but having a valid Japan Visa can also make you enter 4 additional countries. No more going through the hassle of applying visas, you can let the immigration officers see your Japan Visa, and you are good to go. Here are the 4 countries Filipinos can visit with Valid Japan Visa.

4 Countries Filipinos can Visit with a Valid Japan Visa

The Japan Visa may not has as many perks as the US Visa or Schengen Visa, as you can about 30 countries and territories with those, but it’s better than nothing! Please also note that you will mostly need a multiple-entry Japan Tourist Visa, as the single entry is only valid for a few months and for a specific time. The multiple-entry, however, may last up to 5 years.

Not everyone can get a multiple-entry Japan Tourist Visa. You’ll either have been to Japan and is financially capable, traveled several times to a G7 Country (Canada, France, Germany, Italy, UK, and the US), have enough money or is an immediate family member of someone with high financial capacity. One different requirement is also an Explanation Letter. I got my multiple entry visa in Serbia as there was no Embassy in Montenegro.
