    Mera toh set hai, Delhi residence, Gurgaon me office, both served by Delhi region.

    My friends who work in BLR but are from Delhi faced this issue and now the trip is in limbo.


    They have contacted Japanese embassy for exception, let's see.

    If your friend backs out, mereko le chaliyo :Fear:

    There are 5 Japanese consulates in India: Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai, Kolkata, Mumbai.


    Japan embassy demands that an applicant's work and residential address needs to be in the same region i.e. if someone is from Delhi (all identity proofs have Delhi address) but works and lives in Bangalore, they can't apply to either of the Delhi or Bangalore embassy.

    VFS doesn't even accepts the docs in this case.

    If you say office is in BLR but WFH then they demand WFH stated on the NOC from the employer.


    Only way they will accept the application is if you provide address change acknowledgement slip for something like Aadhar to match your residential with your work region and then apply from BLR.

    Who puts the address of a house they rent on identity proofs?


    Other option is to call Japanese embassy before application, get exception and during your visit to VFS, make them call to VFS and convey the same. Obviously this is not foolproof, needs a stronger reason.


    Now Japanese embassy is still accomodating but the damn VFS acts like they have the power. They reject straight away to call embassy or reject docs straight away if WFH.

    They even called the host of the airbnb to verify the booking! This is not directed by Japanese Embassy. Hence, dummy bookings won't work! Use Booking.com to make refundable bookings.


    Such a sh*t show especially with the kind of docs they ask in the first place.


    That is really uber shitty. Hope you have a good resolution, keep us updated!


    It won't help, but can you also relay your VFS experience to the japanese embassy? At least some feedback is better than none.

    Okay thats troublesome. If I have to book flight tix and somehow the visa gets rejected I'm totally screwed no? 


    I just got some more info on dates this morning. Not super concrete but better than before. Roughly free from 27th May - 11th June. Looking at a 2 week trip.


    Hotels are cancellable so I can change it around. Flights (at least budget ones I intend on taking) are not. I essentially want to get the visa process started so I have it in time. 



    Also the visa you'll be granted for only the duration of the itinerary you provide to them

    I don't because I mostly do my workouts before I even go to work. Plus, yes, with age it does become a factor.

    I have only tried it once, just out of curiosity and it didn't really do anything except a tingling sensation.

    But I have seen people around your age really benefiting from pre-workouts, while for some it didn't work at all.


    Maybe you can start with black coffee? See how it works, might mess up sleep.


    I have read into some literature and sugary drinks also work for some people like soda etc. but might not be everyone's thing.


    @achilles Any suggestions?

    maybe a little dark chocolate and a couple of dates? :fear:


    btw most pre-workouts rely on caffeine to give you the boost needed!


    If that fails, get a muse in the gym, that'll get you motivated :fear: :fear1:

    This was pre covid at that time all my spends were on regalia so it was pretty high. I don’t think they do LTF for FD anymore because my friend tried but was denied. Is your DCB LTF ? If yes and the limit is 10 L or more then just drop them an email they might consider. Dad has DCB I dropped an email for him but they keep mentioning that limit needs to be 10L even though he has pretty decent spends. I had taken his add on to try and rake up spends on his dcb but that didn’t help they want the limit. 

    Do you have the email of the team and can you let me know? These companies are excellent at playing finding waldo with their email's
