Japan Visa Application

The moment you get admitted into a Japanese university, it is time to start gathering all the necessary documents and translations of the documents you will need for your student visa application. The visa procedure in Japan is more complex than in some other countries and can take more time to complete than expected, so make sure you are prepared. For more information, visit the nearest Japanese embassy or Consulate in your home country or navigate through the official website of the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs. One precondition for obtaining the Japanese student visa is the Certificate of Eligibility (COE). Obtaining the certificate is only the start of your application, note that it is not the visa itself. The second one is the real submission of the application for the Japanese visa which includes other documents as well.
As for the Certificate of Eligibility, it is your school that’s in charge of issuing the certificate’s application on your behalf. You have to send them the required documents before, though. The application process for a Japanese Certificate of Eligibility can take up to three months, but stay positive, it can take less time!

You will need the following documents for your Japanese Student Visa application:

The Student Visa Application Form, signed by you and the nearest Japanese Embassy or Consulate.
A valid passport and photocopies of the passport.
Passport sized pictures taken within the last three months.
The Certificate of Eligibility (COE).
A letter of admission, letter of invitation or letter of guarantee from your Japanese university, stating exactly the study objective and duration of the studies.
Previous academic or professional qualifications such as transcripts and diplomas.
A motivational letter.
Proof you can meet the financial requirements for your studies in Japan. You can prove this by providing bank or income statements, proof of scholarship or a letter of sponsorship of financial aid from a third party, in case someone is supporting you throughout your studies.
In comparison to other popular study destinations like the US or the United Kingdom, tuition in Japan is quite reasonable for international students applying for Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctorate degrees. For Bachelor’s studies, tuition in Japan fluctuates around 20-23,000 USD, for Master’s around 12,000 USD and for Doctorate studies around 5,000 USD per academic year.
Besides that, keep in mind that each university application is accompanied by an application fee which differs based on the program and university. Bachelor’s, Master’s and PhD studies in medicine and pharmacy cost much more, since the study period is significantly longer.
An additional cost for every international student studying in Japan is the enrolment in the National Health Insurance (NHI). National Health Insurance is essential as it reduces the medical costs in case of injury. You can register for the insurance in your closest local municipal office in Japan after you obtain your visa/residence permit.
