Confirmations and Documents

The Yamasa Institute will issue confirmations and documents throughout the application process, your enrollment and graduation. Wherever possible, confirmations of program/course acceptance, accommodation details and airport pickups etc are made by email. In some cases though documentation is required. The two major documents issued prior to a students' arrival in Japan are the (1) Letter of Acceptance and (2) the Certificate of Eligibility.

1. Letter of Acceptance and supporting documents

This letter is issued after Yamasa has (a) processed your application form, (b) received your photographs, and (c) confirmed your tuition payment. It is this letter that you need to present to a Japanese Embassy or consulate to obtain a visa, OR if you do not need to apply for a visa then it is this document that you show to Immigration officials when you enter Japan to begin your Yamasa program.

2. Certificate of Eligibility

This document is only for applicants who require a student visa. The documents can only be issued after the Immigration Bureau informs Yamasa that your application has been successful. It is only issued twice a year (early March and early September), and cannot be issued until after you transferred a least 1 quarter of tuition (AIJP/AJSP). After you receive this certificate you need to go to a Japanese Embassy or consulate with the certificate and your passport to obtain your visa stamp. After this you are able to enter Japan.

3. Graduation Certificate.

When you complete your program at Yamasa you will receive your graduation certificate. The certificate also has your photograph on it so if you are worried - please supply a good quality passport photo! OR if you aren't happy with the photo your supplied then give Yamasa a new one before you graduate. Click here to view a sample.
