Without this checkup, students cannot receive university health certifications that may be required for scholarship applications and entrance examinations.

National health insurance

The National Health Insurance lessens the burden of the medical costs whenever you are sick or injured.
All overseas students intending to stay in Japan for more than 3 months are required by law to join the National Health Insurance Program. Applications for this program should be submitted to the National Health Insurance Section at the city or town hall where you reside.
By joining the National Health Insurance Program an insurance certificate will be issued.
If this certificate is shown at the reception of the medical institution, the amount to be paid should be 30% of the total medical expense. (There are cases where this may not apply.)
