Japan Visa Application Guide for Filipinos

28

Applying for a Japan Visa in the Philippines is pretty straightforward. Just prepare all the requirements, submit it to any accredited visa processing agency nearest you, and then wait for your passport to be returned — hopefully with the desired Japan Visa in it. Now this may seem simple, but it can get quite complicated as you go along. It’s always best to familiarize yourself with the process before diving in, so here’s a step-by-step guide with some tips, based on our personal experience:

Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam is easily accessible from Siem Reap, Cambodia via two bus rides. You may choose to fly if you’re not a fan of long land travels, but it will definitely cost more. Since we were on a budget, we went with the bus option and only shelled out around PHP 1,800 per person when we travelled from Siem Reap to Ho Chi Minh via Giant Ibis last June.

Being the planning nerds that we are, another thing we personally look forward to when traveling (aside from making the itinerary) is actually planning and organizing the things we should bring 😅 However, we’ve never been in a trip longer than a week, so this 2-week Indochina backpacking trip was definitely a fun challenge, requiring us to travel light and fit two-week’s worth of things into a couple of carry-on bags. Below is a rundown of the things we did bring and how we organized them for an efficient and hassle-free commute.

Thailand-Laos Border Crossing Guide

Travelling overland from Thailand to Laos is quite easy, especially if your country is a member of the ASEAN. Filipinos for example get to enter Laos visa-free, granted that the trip won’t exceed the 30 days. One of the major factors that make the mentioned overland border crossing relatively easy is the First Thai-Lao Friendship Bridge. It connects Thailand’s northernmost province, Nong Khai, to Laos’ Vientiane Prefecture, which are separated by the Mekong River.
