(If you have an agent who was appointed by your sponsoring organization to help you get a student visa, please follow the instructions given to you by the agent.)
In the Proxy Application, you are requested to follow the steps shown below:
  • You must submit the required documents to Rikko. Such required documents include an Application form for Certificate of Eligibility (CoE) for a student visa, photos, financial statement from your bank etc.

  • Rikkyo submits your applicaton form for CoE to the Immigration Office in Tokyo

  • As soon as Rikkyo receives your CoE approved by the Immigration Office, Rikkyo will send the CoE to you

  • Upon receiving the CoE from Rikkyo, you must take the CoE to the nearest Japanese Embassy or Consulate to apply for a student visa. You are strongly recommended to contact the Embassy or Consulate in advance to find out what other documents besides your passport are required.

Your CoE is valid for 3 months after the date issued.
