If any person other than that would like to submit, it should be the applicants themselves, or if completely the third person, he/she must turn in a proxy letter in addition to the application documents.
  3. Submission at our overseas branch or affiliated agents in your countries: If the applicant’s financial sponsor is living outside of Japan, submit the documents at our overseas branch or affiliated agencies. Please contact us if you would like to know the location of the nearest branch or affiliated agencies.

.Screening system: Screening by application documents and Interview (Applicant as well as his/her financial sponsor)


※Please consult with our overseas branch or affiliated agencies about the interview dates.

.Financial Sponsorship


In order to smoothly acquire the Certificate of Eligibility for student visa, applicant’s financial situation is very important. The Sponsor should be applicants’ parent, and also must be able to cover tuition and living expenses for the applicant throughout his or her stay. Thus, the sponsor’s “proof of earnings” and “certificate of deposit balance” should be turned in. The sponsor needs to be responsible for the student’s living situation throughout the stay in Japan, including his/her accommodation, other various problems while living in Japan, such as schoolwork and so on.

.The applicants who had applied to any Japanese Language school before


Please notify us in advance if he/she had applied to a Japanese Language School before. The Immigration Bureau may possibly request to turn in other extra documents, such as the previous application documents.
