Student visa holders after graduation
You need to change your visa status to an appropriate one before graduation. Because your visa will be inappropriate after graduation. Here is an example:
|Ken holds a student visa which expires on Jan. 20, 2020.
He will be graduating on Sep. 15, 2019, and wanting to travel Kyoto and Kyushu.
He needs to change his student visa to a short-stay visa for traveling Japan after graduation, since his visa status is inappropriate (he is not a student anymore). For changing procedure, please refer to the CIE page.
Continuing job-hunting after graduation
Student visa holders who wish to stay in Japan and continue to seek employment after graduation, can apply for the change of their status of residence to “Designated activities (to continue seeking employment).” To apply for it, they need to obtain a letter of recommendation from the Career Center. For more details, please visit our webpage below and refer to the Ministry of Justice official website.
