I am an Indian student and am going to Japan for my summer internship this May. I wanted to know if there is any format for consent letter of parents. Does the letter needs to be from both the parents ? Also, what original documents should I produce to apply for VISA ?
Since you're going for a summer internship, I'm assuming you're in college and thus above 18. You don't need a consent letter if you aren't a minor.
Coming to documents required, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Visa Requirements for Indians- Ministry of Foreign Affairs , you need
- Original letter of Invitation from the company or university that invited you
2.Original Schedule of Stay(Itinerary) signed by the person/company that invited you
3.Certificate of guarantee from company/University if they are covering your expenses
4.An overview of company/organization that is inviting you
6."Confirmation slip, certificate, or other documents to prove reservation of air or ship boarding ticket".
- Certificate of Employment(However, since you're a student you'd need an NOC from the institute you're studying in.
8.Documents to prove ability to pay for travel expenses
- Travel requisition by employer
- Letter of mission
- Similar documents to above
Furthermore according to Japan Embassy in India, you need
- A document that shows tax returns/salary slip from your guarantor in Japan
If you don't have a guarantor in Japan and are either self-funded or funded by a national/state scholarship, you need to submit bank details/tax returns of the individual who is funding you and/or the details of the scholarship that will be covering your expenses
Edit: I forgot to mention that you also need an NOC(No-Objection Letter) from your institute/university
