Student Visa Application Process

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

TUJ submits the visa application to the Immigration Bureau.

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

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.

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