Here is a Japan tourist visa cover letter sample to guide you. A lot of readers have been requesting to post the cover letter we used on our tourist visa application so here I am posting what I made for my sister. As mentioned, we successfully got our Multiple Entry Visa even though it was our first time to apply for Japanese tourist visa.
If you want to know how our visa got approved and how we got a multiple entry visa, please visit this page: “How I Got My Japan Multiple Entry Visa in One Shot.”
Japan Tourist Visa Cover Letter Sample
Embassy of Japan in the Philippines
2627 Roxas Boulevard, Pasay City, 1300
My name is Lauren Park with Passport Number: CB8787888 and I am requesting a tourist visa to travel Japan.
It’s always been my dream to visit Japan someday. I am fascinated by its warm culture and heritage. I want to explore its ancient Shrines and Temples. I am hoping to see the Cherry Blossoms and the beautiful city of Tokyo. I am thrilled to see Japan’s Disneyland and wait for the night’s incredible fireworks. I am looking forward to ride a Bullet Train and see Osaka. I am excited to be in Universal Studios. To be exploring the stunning places of Kyoto and Nara is on my Bucket List, too.
All my supporting documents and visa application are attached below.
- Philippine Passport
- Visa Application Form
- Original Birth Certificate
- Daily Schedule in Japan
- Original Bank Certificate
- Income Tax Return
- Certificate of Employment
- Roundtrip Airline Ticket
I am hoping for your kind consideration. Japan will always be special in my heart. I hope I will be able to travel and explore its beauty.
Please do not copy the sample cover letter above. It is just a guide and do not submit exactly as it is. Just imagine the readers who do that and you all would have the same cover letter. That would be risky on your application. Make sure you write your own CL following what’s in your heart and following your itinerary or plans to travel Japan.
Why should you submit a Cover Letter?
Even though a Cover Letter is not one of the primary requirements and documents needed for Japan tourist visa application. It is usually attached when applying for your second application or when you apply for Multiple Entry.
However, I recommend you also attach a Cover Letter even if it is your first time applying for a tourist visa and even if you are not aiming for the multiple entry visa.
A Cover Letter is a formal way of you letting the embassy knows your keen reasons and intention to visit and travel Japan. It is a way of telling the consul why you love to travel to Japan. So in my opinion, it is an advantage to help get your visa successfully.
Visa applications like Schengen member countries require Cover Letter as part of the document checklist. It is really helpful if you make one for your visa applications. It is not so difficult to make one anyway. It will only take a few minutes.
