Explanation of Each Document noted above
Please fill out the application form by typing and send it back to the OSS via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) by the deadline instructed by the OSS.
Please refer to the samples of how to fill out the application form when filling it out.
- Note to students whose names include characters other than Roman letters A-Z (also referred to as Classic Latin characters): Please write down your “Name” using alphabet (Roman) characters exactly as it appears in the machine readable part of your passport in the item 3 (Name) in the application form. Please do not use non-Roman alphabet characters such as ë, ä, ö, ů, ĕ and etc.
Please send a clear copy of your identification page(s) with your photo, date of birth, place of birth, validity date, and passport number. If your passport is NOT valid for more than after arriving at IUJ, you can apply for a CoE saying you are processing for renewal, but ensure you have it renewed or apply for a new passport as soon as possible. We request this because the entry requirement specifies that it must have a validity remaining approximately six months.
3. Copy of Passport page of immigration history if you have immigration history to/from Japan
As the Immigration Office keeps records of your immigration and travel history to Japan, it’s crucial to provide accurate information when applying for your CoE through a proxy. Please be aware that incorrect information on your application form might fail to obtain your CoE.
4. Your photo data
It needs to be 4cm（ long） × 3cm （wide） and taken within six months. And its background (including shadows) has to be white.
The Immigration Office generally requires that photos be taken without a hat. However, you may submit a photo wearing a hat if you have valid reasons, such as religious or health considerations.
