Additional Documents

If relevant, you may need to submit additional documents (plus 3 photocopies of each) in support of your application:

Collating Your Documents

Please arrange your documents into 1 set of originals plus 3 sets of photocopies, in the order listed above. Each set should be secured individually with a small fold-back clip in the top left corner. Please do not staple your documents or use paperclips, as these may damage your paperwork. All documents must be submitted in the same large envelope and should not be sent separately. Please see the Application Collation Guide for detailed checklists.


Al application packs should be addressed to the UK JET Office and must arrive at the Embassy of Japan by the deadline. This is listed on our homepage. Late applications will not be accepted.
