JAPAN: Visa waiver implemented for UAE nationals

 As of 1 July 2017, the United Arab Emirates nationals holding valid e-passports can enter Japan without obtaining entry visas. Emiratis only need to preregister their e-passports at the Japanese embassy or consulate in their home countries in order to get the necessary entry seal for a stay up to 30 days. The main purpose of the new visa policy is to strengthen mutual tourism and business relations between Japan and the United Arab Emirates. 

How does this affect the client?

The visa waiver arrangement allows Emiratis to enter Japan more easily for regular short stay and transit visits.
