Note: We will assist visa applications submitted after the Student Visa Application Deadline. However, late applicants may not receive a Certificate of Eligibility (COE) from the Japanese Immigration Bureau in time to enter Japan on a student visa. (A COE is required to obtain a student visa.) Until students attain a student visa, they might have to endure some inconvenience. For more information about visa application, please contact us.
