MANILA, Philippines—Even without an official announcement, and decision, for a visa-free travel for Filipinos to Japan, Netizens are all hyped up for the possibility.

On Tuesday, talks were underway to lift the visa requirement of Filipinos, Indonesians and Vietnamese travelling to Japan.


It was a unanimous message on Twitter that Filipinos are elated for the possibility.

One Jean Austin Rogers is “looking forward” for the new opportunity.


Another user, who goes by the handle Primeputri, said that the visa-free travel is “dream come true.”

Jelito de Leon may not be pretty elated with the news but he is one of those “glass is half-full” people.

“I have my fingers crossed for the visa-free Japan trips for Filipinos!” he said on his Twitter account.

A Twitter user who goes by the handle Dude Interrupted have a more direct emotion toward the news.

“Eat this HK!” he posted after Hong Kong required Philippine visas for Filipinos travelling to the country.
