Traveling to Japan as US Permanent Resident with Philippine Passport

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I would like to know what are the requirements to travel to Japan for a short period of time with a Philippine passport as a US Permanent Resident. Do I have to apply for a visa to travel to Japan? What are the requirements needed to go back to US from Japan? Thank you for your time!

As a citizen of the Philippines you need a visa to enter Japan.

A US green card does not make you a US citizen. Only CITIZENS of the US and those countries that have reciprocal agreements with Japan may enter Japan without a visa.
