*Please be aware that some Japanese embassies/consulates might be out of service. Please check their status in advance.
*If you plan to submit your visa application to the Japanese embassy/consulate which is not located in your home county, we would strongly recommend you ask them whether they can accept your application in advance.

For foreign residents of Japan: Upload a copy of your residence card
If you are a permanent resident of Japan, enter “N/A.” in Period of Stay.

Students who do not have a Japanese passport and are not already residents of Japan need to obtain a Certificate of Eligibility (CoE) in order to apply for a student visa. To obtain a CoE, students are required to submit the following documents for the CoE application. Please read the requirements for each document carefully, prepare them, and upload them through Global Campus.

  1. Birth certificate (copy): Please make sure the document shows both parents’ and the child’s names. If parents’ names are not listed, in addition to the birth certificate, submission of a document that proves the parent-child relationship is required.
  2. Certificate of graduation or enrollment: Usually, it is issued by the school you graduated from before. If you are in school now, please submit a certificate of enrollment stating your expected graduation/withdrawal or transfer-out date from your current school. (there is no specified format for this document)
  3. Bank statement: A bank statement that must show an account balance exceeding the amount of the family obligation stated in your Enrollment Agreement. If you submit multiple bank statements, please make sure that the account holders are the parents listed on the birth certificate. If you submit bank statements from relatives’ accounts, submission of a document that proves the relationship between the student and the person is required. Please keep your original bank statement safe to avoid misplacing it, as the immigration office may ask for the original copy to be submitted as proof of funds.

Note: Document Language

Please request document issuance in English if possible. If it is not possible to issue it in English, please attach an English translation to the original one and submit them through Global Campus. English translations don’t have to be official. You can do the English translation yourself or by using an online translator if necessary.

List an accurate address where you can receive mails/DHL/courier deliveries from UWC ISAK Japan, during the summer (Jun – Aug.). We may send you your visa paperwork (CoE) and other important documents physically if it is not possible to send this by email. If you cannot receive DHL/courier deliveries to your home address, you can provide the address of a parent’s workplace, the home of a relative, your school, etc.
