【No Charge for ERFS! 】Working Holiday Visa Course


【No Charge for ERFS Issuance! 】
I want to live in Japan! I want to work using Japanese in the future! I want to learn Japanese as much as possible during my stay in Japan!
TCJ will support such dreams.
We issue ERFS free of charge to those who enter Japan with a short-stay visa such as a working holiday visa. Why don't you come to TCJ and learn "live Japanese" while you are in Japan?

The only course eligible for ERFS issuance is the "Daytime Standard Class".

This is a class designed to provide a solid understanding of the four skills of reading, writing, speaking, and listening.
Students can acquire practical Japanese communication skills and acquire the high level of Japanese language proficiency necessary for higher education, employment, and daily life.
Classes are divided into beginner, intermediate, intermediate, and advanced levels, allowing you to study at the level that best suits you, and the curriculum also includes content for the JLPT exam.

What is ERFS?

The Japanese government, which has imposed severe restrictions on travel in the Corona pandemic, has eased measures for foreigners wishing to enter Japan effective March 1, 2022.
Under the new immigration rules, foreign nationals will be subject to [the Entrants, Returnees Follow-up System (ERFS)] and will be required to obtain a health clearance from a company, school, or other organization based in Japan.

This is required for foreigners entering Japan for the first time on a working holiday or short-term stay (3 months or less), and applicants must have a receiving institution in Japan.
TCJ issues the ERFS free of charge to working holiday visa and other short-term stay applicants. (Course designation is required)
