Visa Application Process and Documents

Visa Application Process

  1. Submit the required documents (pg.9) to TIU by the application deadline (pg.4).
  2. TIU 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. Once TIU receives the COE, TIU will invoice the student for the Advance Payment.
  5. After confirming receipt of payment, TIU sends the COE via express mail to the student.
  6. 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.
  7. The passport is stamped with the visa and returned to the student. The student may now enter Japan.

Visa Application Documents

In addition to completing the Admission Application, please submit the following items by the student visa application deadline. All documents must be in English. Documents sent to TIU will not be returned.

1. Student Visa Application Form

Upon completion of an application for admission, a link to the online student visa application form will be sent by e-mail.

2. Passport Photocopy

4. Proof of Financial Viability

To issue a student visa, the Japanese Immigration Bureau requires that all students show the ability to support themselves. TIU estimates ¥3,000,000 (or equivalent in foreign currency) as the amount necessary to cover costs, including tuition, school fees, and living expenses, for the first two semesters. The documents you submit should show where the money to pay for school and living expenses is actually coming from.

Students can submit documents in their own name or, if you do not have the full amount, a financial guarantor, such as a parent, relative or acquaintance, can submit documents on your behalf to meet the ¥3,000,000 requirement. The guarantor must submit documents in his or her name that reflect their current financial situation, and must be dated within three months of the visa application deadline. The guarantor must complete the Letter of Sponsorship below. GI Bill 100% coverage recipients do not need to submit a Letter of Sponsorship

Financial viability can be proved by submitting copies of any combination of the following documents:

All documents must be in either Japanese or English. Documents may not be submitted after the visa application deadline.

5. Student Visa Application Fee

The non-refundable student visa application fee of ¥20,600 can be paid online or by bank transfer upon acceptance to TIU or as a part of the Advance Payment.

How to Acquire a Visa for Entering Japan—Application Procedures for Certificate of Eligibility for Residence Status

A visa must be acquired in order to study in Japan. There are two ways in which the visa may be acquired.

 

(1) The foreign student wishing to enter Japan for studies should files an application for a visa directly to an overseas Japanese embassy or consulate.

(2) An employee of the educational institution in which the foreign student is scheduled to enroll makes an application to the relevant immigration office, etc. for a Certificate of Eligibility for Residence Status (“Certificate of Eligibility”) on the foreign student’s behalf. Once the Certificate of Eligibility is granted, the foreign student wishing to enter Japan takes his/her Certificate of Eligibility to an overseas Japanese embassy or consulate and files an application for a visa. (See diagram)

 

The Certificate of Eligibility provides proof that s/he conforms to the conditions for entry as prescribed in Article 7 Paragraph 1 Item 2 of the Immigration Control Act. Therefore, being in possession of a Certificate of Eligibility will make the procedures for visa issuance at overseas Japanese embassies, etc. as well as the immigration inspection at a Japanese airport go smoothly.
The documents necessary for filing an application for a Certificate of Eligibility to the immigration office is described at the Immigration Bureau of Japan website. Please note that because the documents required by a Japanese educational institution may differ from school to school, you should consult the school in which you are scheduled to enroll for details.
