Once the bank transfer is confirmed, the original “authorization of resident eligibility” will be sent to the student. The applicant shall apply to the Japanese embassy or consulate in his/her own country for a student visa using the “school acceptance form”, the “authorization of resident eligibility” and his/her “passport” while the “authorization of resident eligibility” is valid, and shall then receive his/her visa.

2.Based on individual circumstances, you may be asked to submit documents other than the above or to participate in an interview. Therefore, please check this information in advance and make the necessary preparations.

3.If you do not apply for landing at an airport, etc. in Japan within 3 months after the issuance of the "authorization of resident eligibility”, further procedures cannot be taken, so please mind this deadline.
