I want to apply for a visa for Japan. I also need a visa for China. Which visa should I apply for first?
At the Japan Consulate in Los Angeles, if your itinerary shows multiple countries, you must apply for your visas in the reverse order of travel. For example, if you hold an India passport and need a visa for Japan and China, and if your itinerary states you are going to Japan first, the Consulate will not accept your application unless you show you have received the visa for your onward destination first. In this case, China.
