Canadian embassy closed Visa department in Japan

Canadian embassy closed Visa department in Japan


As of 5/1/2012, Canadian embassy in Tokyo closed the Visa department and they will accept none of the new application.

All the visa and immigration work will be moved to Canadian embassy in Philippines.

Canadian embassy is asking to have every application sent to the address below by international shipping.

No reason is explained.



Embassy of Canada
Visa and Immigration Section
P.O. Box 2168
Makati Central Post Office
Makati City 1200



PS. They closed in Germany, Malaysia, Bangladesh too. It’s supposed to be for reducing the cost and efficiency. Whatever the reason is, Canada is one of the most important evacuation places for Japanese. Taking 13 weeks to apply causes a problem. [Link]

About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
