India binds relations with Japan

 As India gives visa-on-arrival to the Japanese, Tokyo has responded by further relaxing conditions for multiple-entry visas for short-term stay for ordinary Indian passport holders. Japan extended the validity period of such visas from a maximum of three years to five years. Japan also increased duration of visit on multiple entry visas,including tourism and business, to 30 days from the earlier 15. The relaxation is based on an understanding reached between the two countries during Japanese PM Shinzo Abe's visit to India in December 2015.

According to Japan authorities, eligibility for multiple-entry visas has been expanded to include people with travel records to Japan for short-term visit in the past three years and those with travel records as temporary visitor to any other G7 countries.
The validity of visas for business purposes and also for "cultural and intellectual figures'' has been extended from 5 to 10 years. Hence, the bond between India and Japan seem to bind more tightly.
