Your first step to Japan
If you are planning to study in Japan more than three months, you'll need to get a student visa. Just like any immigration procedure getting a visa involves a lot of form-filling, application processing and trips to an imposing-looking embassy building.
HERE WE GO
Fill out the inquiry form
Complete the student visa application form that we send to you.
Submit all the required documents by the application deadline.
WE'RE ON IT!
Once we have received all the required documents, we will send everything to the school.
NOW ENJOY YOUR COFFEE BREAK
The school will then submit the visa application to the Immigration Bureau in Japan on your behalf.
OR A LITTLE LONGER ONE..
Be patient as it takes 2~3 months for Immigration to approve a visa application and issue the COE.
Once the Immigration Bureau approves your visa application, the school will send you the Certificate of Eligibility (COE).
KEEP UP, ALMOST THERE
Once you receive the COE, take it and the visa application form (obtained from the Japanese embassy in your country), photos and valid passport to the Japanese embassy or consulate in your city.
JUST A BIT MORE
The Embassy will issue you the actual student visa which can take anywhere from 3 – 7 days.
You are now in possession of a brand new Japanese student visa!
