I emailed my sensei's assistant Professor asking the following details:
Dear Prof. Ery,
I will visit Japan embassy on Monday and submit all requirements needed. However, there are some details asked in the visa application form that I hope you can help me with or clarify. Here are the following details asked:
Intended length of stay: ( 2 years? although the program is 5 years, I understand that I can only write what's written based on the certificate given to me)
Date of arrival in Japan: in the visa sample given, October 2016 (with no exact day) was written. I am confused as to whether I would write the exact day of my flight (which I don't have as of the moment), or just stick with October 2016.
Port of Entry: Kansai Airport?
Name of Ship/ Airline: No idea
Name and address of hotels/persons with whom applicant intends to stay:
Since I am applying for a student visa for 2 years, I wonder if the information I would write here is the hotel I would be staying for 1-2 days or the dormitory I would be assigned to. The problem here is I don't know any details yet with regards to my dormitory. Name, Telephone Number and Address are asked.
Guarantor or reference in Japan:
Should I write your name Prof,Ery? or should it be Prof. Muranaka? Name, Tel.No., Address, Date of Birth, Occupation and Position, Nationality and Immigration status are asked.
Inviter in Japan: (same as the Guarantor right?)
Thank you so much for your kind assistance. Have a great day Prof.Ery!
I will update you guys once I receive Prof. Ery's reply.
