Visa Application Process
After being admitted, it will be necessary to obtain a student visa before
entering Japan. Nagoya University of Foreign Studies will apply for a
Certificate of Eligibility (a visa-supporting document) at the Nagoya
Immigration Bureau on your behalf. It normally takes about one to two months
for the bureau to issue it. Immediately after Nagoya University of Foreign
Studies receives the certificate, it will be sent to the mailing address
specified on the application form. It is advisable that you contact the
nearest Japanese embassy or consulate to obtain further information
concerning requirements for your visa application. Each student is
responsible for obtaining a Japanese visa prior to departure for Japan.
