With completed application materials submitted, IEC will, on behalf of the students, apply to the Immigration Bureau for the “Certificate of Eligibility” (CoE). Please note that it will take approximately 1 to 2 months for CoE to be issued by the Immigration Bureau (usually in late July for Fall semester applicants, February for Spring semester applicants). Therefore, make sure there are no mistakes in the documents submitted in Excel-file (3 sheets). As soon as CoE is issued, AGU will forward the document by post to the student’s home university. CoE, along with Letter of Acceptance and valid passport is usually necessary to apply for student visa at your local Japanese Embassy / Consulate of citizenship, BEFORE departing your home country. Please check with local Japanese Embassy / Consulate regarding any updated information or details.
