Apply for a New Student Visa
Application Deadline April 25
All non-Japanese students who intend to take classes and who do not have a resident, diplomatic, dependent, or spousal visa must acquire a Japanese student visa. Students cannot apply for a Japanese student visa independently of TUJ. Please be sure to familiarize yourself with the visa regulations.
Obtaining a student visa is a two-step process. First, TUJ must submit a Certificate of Eligibility (COE) application on behalf of all admitted students to the Japanese Immigration Bureau. Second, you must complete and submit a visa application to your local Japanese embassy or consulate .
Change your student Visa sponsorship to TUJ
You can change your visa sponsorship if you meet both conditions below:
- The program at your current institution finishes within 3 months of the first day of the starting semester at TUJ, and
- Your current student visa is valid for a month after the start of your first semester at TUJ.
Scenario 1: Residence card is valid for more than 3 months after TUJ starts
Financial viability ¥2,000,000
Scenario 2: Residence card is valid for less than 3 months after TUJ starts
Financial viability ¥4,000,000
Process (Applicable for both Scenario 1 and 2):
- Once students graduate/withdraw from their current school, they are not allowed to work part-time until TUJ starts.
Changing from other Visa status
Please refer to the Undergraduate page for more information.
The process is the same as for undergraduate students. The only difference is the proof of financial viability. MiM program requires a total of 4,000,000 yen (or equivalent in foreign currency) or more.
Be either in Japanese or English.
