Costs and visas

Insurance and additional costs

You are required to enrol in the Japanese National Insurance System which costs approximately ¥1,600 a month.

NHI covers 70% of medical expense and an international student is responsible for the rest, 30% of the expense.

Additionally, you are required to buy the accident insurance policies (about ¥1,500 for one year) which are offered at Chiba University.


Please make sure you have an up to date passport that expires no earlier than six months after you intend to return.

You will be provided with guidance and documentation from the partner university but it will be your responsibility to obtain the correct visa.

Neither the Study Abroad team here or at the partner university are qualified to offer consultations or detailed advice regarding visa applications. Immigration laws are complex and subject to frequent changes. So if you do have any visa related questions you will need to contact the appropriate Embassy directly.
