Affidavit of Support & Guarantee (ASG) must be submitted by Filipino residents of Nagoya, Japan if they wish to sponsor their first or second degree of consanguinity or affinity. The applicant may go directly to the Philippine Consulate General in Nagoya, Japan, to submit an ASG, but for faster processing, it is best to book an appointment online. Be reminded that the application must include particular requirements from the sponsor and the sponsored individual, like a valid passport, and the applicant needs to bring along two (2) co-signatories.

Using an ASG does not ensure entry or the approval of a visa. It is merely an application for visa-supporting documents. Personnel of the Philippine Bureau of Immigration (BI) usually request an ASG document from Filipinos planning a tourist trip to Japan.
