ME Tokyo warns of discrepancies in payment for consular services

As it is difficult to repay, those seeking consular services are advised by the Myanmar Embassy in Tokyo to take great care to avoid discrepancies in deposits to the embassy’s account.
Consular services for Myanmar nationals and Japanese in Japan include passport renewal, reapplication for losses, payment of income tax, and the issuance of endorsement letters. Those seeking services must pay directly into the embassy account at SUMITOMO MITSUI BANKING CORPORATION ( GOTANADA BRANCH) (NON-RESIDENT CURRENT ACCOUNT).
However, the bank has informed that payments to the embassy account at SMBC bank cannot be made via ATM at SMBC bank. The transfer fee at the SMBC counter is over 7,000 yen, and they can transfer from ATMs of other banks as well as of convenience stores with affordable charges, the embassy said.
The transfer details are SUMITOMO MITSUI BANKING CORPORATION (SMBC), Gotanda Branch, Current Account, Account Number 4035008, beneficiary Myanmar Embassy and Tel:03-3441-9291.
The remitter must make the remittance in the name of the applicant and if Myanmar Embassy is not mentioned in the recipient, it will not be credited to the embassy’s account. They are also required to submit original bank chalans deposited to the embassy account within three days from the date of application to collect their documents on a scheduled date, the embassy stated.
