Year-end and new year holiday deadline for various applications


Eiken Foundation of Japan and the IELTS office (Tokyo/ Osaka Centre) will be closed for Winter Holidays from Saturday 29 December to Sunday 6 January.

To ensure secure processing of the requests received before the holidays, we have set up a request submission deadline as follows:
Deadline of submission: 10:00 a.m. (JST) Thursday 27 December

●Deadline for re-uploading your passport after renewal (for candidates sitting the session on Saturday 5 January 2019)
Any passport image received after the above deadline will not be considered.
The passport you bring on the test date must be valid (not expired/ void) and match the passport image you have uploaded during the registration process.
Candidates considering renewing their passport for the 5th of January’s session, please be extra careful about the timing.

●Additional TRF
All complete and intact requests received by the deadline will be processed and sent out to the respective institutions within 2018.  However, requests which are found to be incomplete or insufficient will be processed from Monday 7 January 2019, after all relevant information has been confirmed.
Note, as the receiving institutions will be on holidays as well various operations may be closed. Your mail may not go into circulation until the next business date after the holidays.  Also additional time may be required for delivery as postal services will be operating with reduced hours during this period.

●EOR (for 17 November 2018 session)
