Return Ticket Procedures / 帰国旅費の手続きについて


Japanese government (MEXT) scholarship students who will complete their research within the scholarship period must carry out some procedures before returning to their home countries. Graduating students will be notified by the International Student Support Unit (ISSU) to submit necessary documents. If you are expected to graduate in September, you should apply for the return ticket by late July; if you are expected to graduate in March, apply by late December.
If you continue to stay in Japan or decline a return ticket, please inform the International Student Support Unit.
