Research Student Admission – Step 11: Apply for Student Visa
It is necessary to obtain a Certificate of Eligibility for Status of Residence in order to enter Japan as a student. In order to obtain the certificate, you need to take either of the following procedures after an official “Letter of Admission” issued by Tokushima University.
- Direct application at a Japanese Embassy or Consulate in applicant’s country.
*This takes considerable time to complete.
- Proxy application by a deputy who lives in Japan can be made at a local Immigration Bureau (Ministry of Justice) in Japan.
*This is more preferable when the time is limited.
