【"Student" Status of Residence】

The "Student" status of residence is a status of residence for the purpose of pursuing education at a university or other institution. To obtain this status, you must apply for a Certificate of Eligibility (COE). Basically, the university applies on your behalf.

【Student Visa】

A Student visa is required for new entry into Japan as an international student. Application is made at the Japanese embassy or consulate in your country of residence (outside Japan). A Certificate of Eligibility is required for application.

【Residence Card】

After entering Japan with a Student visa, the student will be issued a residence card as proof of status of residence. The card can be picked up at the airport when you enter Japan. (For some airports, it will be mailed to the reported address at a later date.) Please note that if your residence card expires, you will be in Japan illegally.
