Student Visa Application Process

1. Submit the required documents to TUJ on or before the student visa application deadline.

2. TUJ submits the visa application to the Immigration Bureau.

3. Immigration will take 5-8 weeks to approve the visa application and issue a Certificate of Eligibility (COE).

4. The student takes the COE and passport to the nearest Japanese embassy or consulate for final processing, which takes 1-8 days depending on the embassy or consulate.

5. The passport is stamped with the visa and returned to the student. The student may now enter Japan.
