Effective July 30, 2007. the Consulate of Japan in Manila, Cebu and Davao will no longer accept direct visa applications but through agencies accredited by the Embassy of Japan in Manila. Direct applications may only be accepted in cases of "humanitarian considerations"; and visas for diplomats and government officials, invitees by the Japanese government institutions and independent administrative agencies, and scholarship awardees.
