according to Japan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the government of Japan decided to endeavor to realize the exemption or relaxation of visa requirements for nationals of Indonesia, the Philippines and Vietnam. The objective is to promote Japan as a tourism oriented country with the even higher goal of attracting 20 million foreign visitors. Para sa mga Filipinos at mga Vietnamese, multiple entry visa will be substantially relaxed. Multiple entry visas for short-term stay term of validity is up to three years with a period of fifteen days. For more information or clarification, please contact the Consular Section of the Embassy of Japan nearest you. Kaya mga kababayan, hindi po visa free to Japan.

Ang mga nahuli o kinasuhan ay sina Juan Malaluan Tenorio, Jr. and Glyn Cordova Villegas of Kern County; James Quijano Leoncio of Orange County; Philip Tolentino Sarmiento, Laurence Viernes, German Zagada and Jude Dagza Leoncio of Los Angeles County. Silang lahat ay nag-apply to practice Registered Nurses sa California using false and forged nursing school transcripts from the Philippines. The eighth individual, Joanne Keeney, who is currently in the Philippines and the suspected ringleader ay may warrant na for her arrest. (Source: infonurses.com)
