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.
