Certificate of Eligibility (CoE)

Updated: Jul 9, 2021

Tuesday - Out of the Country Concerns

I never announced what Tuesday’s topic would be about. This day will be dedicated to candidates living overseas. I hope this information will help you to understand the situation in Japan.

If you are worried about your visa expiration, worry no more. Due to the coronavirus, there has an extension of them.

Before 1. Validity of COE

(1) For COE issued from October 1, 2019 to December 31, 2019

Valid until April 30, 2021

(2) For COE issued from January 1, 2020 to January 30, 2021

Valid until July 31, 2021

(3) For COE issued from January 31, 2021

Valid for six (6) months

Ex.) COE issued on January 31, 2021: Valid until July 31, 2021

But now!!

All COE’s are extended to January 2022.

With an approval letter you can use or re-apply. Please do not throw them away!! Having them will make the process faster.
