Westgate sponsors working visas for our employees. Here is a brief explanation of the visa application procedure.
|Certificate of Eligibility ("COE")
|Westgate applies for your COE and sends it to you once it is issued. The COE is what you need to apply for a Japan Visa (entry visa) at your end.
|Japan Visa (entry visa)
|After you receive your COE, you are required to apply for a Japan Visa at the Japanese Consulate/Embassy closest to your home before you come to Japan.
|Upon entering Japan and upon submission of both your COE and Japan Visa at the immigration counter at your point of entry into Japan, you will receive a Landing Permit from the immigration inspector.
