What is the process to get a Canadian visa from Japan?
If you are a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, you can apply for a visa at the Japanese Embassy or Consulate in your home country.
You will need to provide some basic information such as your full name, date of birth, passport number and expiry date, as well as proof that you have enough money to support yourself during your stay. You will also be required to submit an application fee and a medical certificate.
Once you have completed the application process, you will need to send it to the Japanese embassy or consulate in your home country. The embassy or consulate will then contact the Canadian immigration department and request a visa officer come visit you for an interview.
After the interview, the Canadian immigration department will issue you a visa if you are approved for one. You will then need to bring your visa application form and all of the necessary documentation to Japan when you travel. CANADA VISA FROM SINGAPORE
How to get a Canadian visa from Singapore
If you are planning on visiting Canada, one of the easiest ways to obtain a visa is to apply from either Japan or Singapore. Both countries have bilateral agreements with Canada that allow for visas to be issued quickly and easily.
To apply from Japan, you will first need to make an appointment with the Canadian Embassy in Tokyo. The process is fairly straightforward and can be done in person or by mail. You will need:
The completed visa application form (A-1)
Two passport size photos
USD 200 cash payment (or bank transfer if applying through the mail)
Proof of travel arrangements (a hotel reservation, plane ticket, etc.)
Once you have made your appointment, you will need to bring all of the required documents with you to the embassy. The process will likely take around five business days and you will receive a visa clearance letter in the mail confirming your eligibility for a Canadian Visa. If applying through the mail, please note that it may take up to two weeks for your application to reach Tokyo.
If applying in person at the Canadian Embassy in Tokyo, expect to pay CAD $85 for processing fees, plus another CAD $25 for each additional family member over the age of 6 years travelling with you. This fee includes a digital photograph and chit-chat with a friendly officer about Canada. Note that this fee does not include travel insurance if required.
