Support Systems for International Students

VISA・Status of Residence

A Student Visa is required when your expected period of stay is more than three months. International students need to obtain a “Student Visa” at the nearest Japanese Embassy or Consulate General before entering Japan. A Certificate of Eligibility for Status of Residence (CESR) is required for your visa application. The Administration Office for International Students and Scholars, University of East Asia, will apply for the CESR to the Japanese Immigration Bureau for all international students who are accepted into University of East Asia.

Housing

Residential Facilities for International Students
University of East Asia and other public organizations have a limited number of residential facilities for international students. The rent of rooms of these publicly managed facilities is inexpensive compared with those of private housing. The maximum duration of an overseas student’s residence at these publicly owned facilities is one to two years.
Some International students at University of East Asia live in private housing. To find and rent private housing, local real estate brokers are generally used.  When you make a contract to rent private housing, in most cases you will be required to pay a "Shiki-kin" (deposit) and/or a "Reikin" (key money) to the lessor. Also, you must pay a brokerage fee to the real estate broker. The average rent in Shimonoseki is ¥20,000, although the rent and other terms of lease vary depending on the location, conditions of the property and other factors.

Notification of place of residence(address), (procedure at the local municipal office)

Those who have received a residence card at a port of entry are asked to visit the municipal office where you live with your residence card, and notify your address within 14 days of finding a place to settle down. This includes those in possession of a passport stating “A residence card will be issued late”. In such a case, please be sure to bring your passport to your municipality's office and follow the necessary procedures. After you notify your address, your residence card will be sent to the address by the Immigration Bureau by registered mail.

National Health Insurance (procedures at the local municipal office)

All foreigners (including accompanying family members)who reside legally in Japan longer than three months are required to enroll in this program unless they are enrolled in some other social insurance program, such as that offered at their workplace. Once enrolled, subscribers will receive a health insurance card. When they receive treatment at any healthcare provider that accepts the NHI, they will only need to pay 30% of the expenses when presenting the insurance card at the reception desk before treatment. To become a National Health Insurance policyholder, go to the relevant division of your local municipal office.

Part-time Jobs

Those who have a “Student(/ryugaku)”status are not permitted to work or be compensated in the form of payment. Only those who need to supplement school and living expenses will be able to obtain a work permit. With the new residence management system, permission to engage in an activity other than that permitted under the resident status is given at Narita, Haneda, Chubu, and Kansai Airports(where resident cards are issued), to persons with Student visa, who enter Japan for the first time. They are allowed to work part time under the following requirements.
1. The part-time job must not interfere with academic work.
2. Those who have “Student(/ryugaku)”status are permitted to work up to 28 hours per week and 8 hours a day only during a long vacation.
3. The part-time job must not affect public order and morals (e.g., sex-related industry employment is forbidden).
