Related articles I want to continue job hunting in Japan after graduation. Is it possible to stay in Japan with a “Student” status of residence? (Updated 2024.02.02) Form for Inquiry/Submit (Current Students Only) I have received my Certificate of Eligibility (COE) but I have not been able to apply for my visa at the nearest embassy (consulate). Is that okay? At what times do I have to submit a copy of my Residence Card to the university? I am feeling uneasy since I am unaccustomed to living in Japan. Are there any help-desks that I can consult?
