Housing Fee

2. Application for “Certificate of Eligibility”

Your visa status in Japan will be “student visa.” After you have submitted your application forms, Soka University will apply for “Certificate of Eligibility.”
If there are any missing or incomplete documents, we will ask you to promptly submit the necessary documents as needed.

3. Obtaining a Visa

“Certificate of Eligibility” will be approved and issued by the Immigration Bureau.
Once the certificate is issued and after you have paid the necessary fee, Soka University will send out the Letter of Acceptance to the admitted students (around 1 month prior to enrollment).
  • Admitted students can obtain their student visa at their local Japanese consulate or embassy. Students should bring the “Certificate of Eligibility” and passport with them.
  • Since necessary documents to obtain a visa may differ among countries, admitted students should directly consult the consulate or embassy.

4. Arrival and Dormitory Check-in

Upon arrival, students may use the pick-up service provided by Soka Unviersity. We will pick them up at either Narita or Haneda Airport. However, the pick-up service will only be available for students arriving on certain dates designated by the university. The dates will be announced in the enrollment guideline (same as the check-in dates of the dormitories).
