I have recently come across the Passport Requirement at the Consulate of Japan in Sydney's website asking for at least 2 spread blank visa pages. I am a bit confused with this as i do have several empty pages in my Passport but i am not having 2 spread (consecutive) blank visa pages. Does anyone have experience with this?

  • It is a common requirement with stick visas, usually put into odd page (and immigration stamps on left page, but thing will get messier). I assume if they cancel your visa, they need some space near the original visa) You may need to get a new passport. – Giacomo Catenazzi Jan 21 at 12:57
  • Giacomo Catenazzi ... i have travelled more than 30 countries over the past 10 years and the maximum i came across is a requirement of more than one blank page. This sounds really strange that the Consulate requires 2 spread blank pages. In fact, i checked the Embassy's and other Japanese Consulate websites and couldn't find such a requirement ... this is particular to Sydney Consulate. Finally, its still 3 years to my Passport Expiry and it becomes really difficult to explain to the authorities for a renewal when a number of single pages are still left in Passport. – Qureshi Jan 21 at 13:20
  • Ok. Russia requires two page, but not spread. – Giacomo Catenazzi Jan 21 at 16:28
