Applying Tourist Visa Japan Question and Answer

How much money to show in my bank certificate for Japan Visa?


It will really depend on your purpose in visiting Japan.

The Japanese Embassy in Manila will also look at your itinerary so putting expensive items on it is not a good idea if you don’t have that much money to spend.

Generally, an average of 7,000 to 10,000 pesos per day in Japan is safe enough to be able to get a visa, however, it is a bad idea to put an immediate big amount of money just to show that you have a good bank balance.

Why? Because it won’t help increase your average annual or monthly balance and the embassy can verify your information anytime with your bank branch. Just be careful on your bank deposits.

  • Sir ask lang po nag apply po ko ng visa nov 16 sa UHI for tourist ksama ko po anak ko pero till now po ala result every year po kasi nag tratravel po kami pa naka punta na po kami ng malaysia singapore and disney pa gift ko sa ank ko kaso till now po ala result ibig po ba sabihin po denied.

  • Sir Mark,

    Ask ko lang po… what if my hubby is an OFW in Singapore. Once a month lang po remittance nya, medyo na-uubos po namin by end of the month. Ok lang ba to for the bank certificate?

    Secondly po, on the ITR, paano po bo for a housewife na wala’ng steady income? We are solely dependent po on my hubby’s remittance. Kung ba’ga…. zero income po ako. Paano po ba?

    Me and my 2 daughters po kasi, we are planning to go to Tokyo this April or May for a 5 day tour (DIY lang po). My hubby will be flying-off from Singapore and meet us in Narita airport so we can tour together.

    I hope you could enlighten us on what to do.
    Salamat po.

      • Salamat po sa quick reply Sir Mark.

        Pwede pala ganyan?
        I mean… wala po sa Japan nagwo-work hubby ko, nasa Singapore po sya.

        Salamat again.

      • My dad will sponsor me and my mom on our Japan trip (di siya kasama). He has 2 bank accounts (Savings at Rural Bank of our town) and BDO Checking(For checks) Account(Codepositor Mom ko). The savings has 300k and Checking has 400k. Should we provide both bank certificate or just one? Di ba masama na malaki masyado yung balance kasi daw suspicious din daw yan. BTW we have a small family business. Thank you po! 🙂

  • Good afternoon po. Ask ko lang po magkano po ang kaylangang amount na naka indicate sa bank certificate sa Japan bank account para makapagbigay ng visa sa pamangkin ko?
