I have a multiple entry Japan visa valid for 5 years and for 30 days of stay duration. I went to Japan last year and they put an initial stamp on my passport with Date of permit as 09 Nov 2018 , until 09 Dec 2018 and Duration 30 days

But i departed within 12 days so then there is a departure stamp for 20th Nov 2018.

Now i am not sure if i can still use this visa for remaining 18 days or is this visa entirely used?


It's a multiple entry visa, so you can use it as many times as you want (while it is valid), and you will have 30 days each time.

    Thanks for response. So in multiple entry visa, 30 days are applicable for each entry and its not cummulative number of days? – Travelling Juggernaut Nov 17 '19 at 10:13

    @TravellingJuggernaut Correct. In many countries including Japan, the visa gives you the right to enter the country during a given period (for you 5 years), and you are given an entry permit valid for a number of days (30) on arrival. – lambshaanxy Nov 17 '19 at 10:49
