I am a Filipino citizen residing in Virginia. I am planning to visit the Philippines as a non-revenue passenger from Dallas to Japan, but I also have a paid ticket from Japan to the Philippines. Do I still need a Japanese transit visa?

    What is "non-reving"? – fkraiem Jun 19 '18 at 5:29

    @fkraiem its a slang other people use, mostly airline employees. It means you are a chance passenger or you're using a buddy pass. Short for non-revenue passenger. – Jose Iñigo Jun 19 '18 at 5:35
  • Are your flights to/from the same airport and on the same calendar day? – jpatokal Jun 19 '18 at 7:14

    I would be very surprised if the fact of being a non revenue passenger made any difference to immigration requirements. – user16259 Jun 19 '18 at 7:52
  • @jpatokal Well, lets just say that my potential flight plan would be flying out from Dallas, TX on the 22nd then arriving to Narita, Japan on the 23rd then my flight to the Philippines would be 2-3 hours after my arrival to Japan. That means I don't need to go out of immigration anymore. – Jose Iñigo Jun 19 '18 at 15:09
