|Visa Process||After careful consideration of each application by the CJS selection committee, successful applicants are informed of their acceptance into the program, subject to confirmation by the applicant. Upon receiving the payment of fees from the applicant, CJS files an application for a Certificate of Eligibility, which is issued by the Japanese Ministry of Justice through the Nagoya Immigration Bureau. After completing the remittance of fees (see next column), CJS sends the Certificate of Eligibility to the applicant’s registered address as soon as the certificate is received from the Immigration Bureau.
The certificate is mailed, together with an official letter of admission, approximately one month before the start of semester. Immediately after receiving the CoE, application for the visa should then be carried out at a Japanese embassy or consulate by presenting a valid passport, the official letter of admission, and the Certificate of Eligibility.
Please note that if students enter Japan with a visa other than a “student” visa, or with a visa exemption privilege, they may be requested to leave Japan to change their visa status. Any such applications to change resident status to that of “student” are dealt with on an individual basis. For those receiving scholarships or loans for their study at CJS, they are required to submit supporting documents to prove that.
Please inform prospective dates of acceptance if the dates would be later than UMAP's Timeline for onlire placement period. It helps students to choose their preferences.
