Q: Is there any travel agency in Shanghai that can help me get a visa to Japan?

I'd love to go to Japan but I am not sure whether I can get a tourist visa in Shanghai . I'm originally from Moscow  and don't feel like going back home just to apply for this visa.

What does the Japanese visa office say?

Normally, the first point of call would be the website of the place you want to go to.

Have they said no to you? Have they refused your visa application? Have you even applied?

We need more info, more background info.

Tell us what you have done, and we will use our VPNs to google an answer for you.

By the way... If you cant afford a vpn in china...you cant afford to go to Japan.

Depends on what visa you are on in China.  If you have a residence permit, you should be able to get a visa.  There is a visa centre in Shaghai that handles visa applications for many countries, although I am not sure if Japan is one of them,  If you are in China on a tourist visa, you might have to return tu Moscow to get a visa.

Thanks a lot for the replies!

I do have a VPN and my Chinese husband will pay for the trip so the only thing I need to do is get the visa. I do have a residence permit but I don't work officially at the moment...

I haven't applied so far as I'm trying to figure out whether it's possible to get it here or not.

I did find some information on Russian websites but it seems most of my countrymen gave up on Japan because it's hard to get a visa there. Thus I wonder if there's a travel agency that could help me get a visa.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
