About the student visa
The resident status obtainable with ARC Admission Certificate is that of student. Concerning the activities allowed to student visa holders, in principle, they are limited to school education.
Consequently, in case of withdrawal from school, regardless of its residual validity the student visa becomes invalid after a certain time.
For student visa holders, attendance rate is a very important aspect. In case of poor attendance, visa renewal might be denied and students might be expelled from school and unable to access higher education. ARC rule on attendance rate is 90%. Make sure you follow the attendance rate rule and make the best of your study abroad experience.
- While enrolled, it is possible to temporarily leave the country.
- As a rule, the school allows students to leave Japan during school holidays only. Informing the school before departure is also mandatory.
