Certificate Issuance

"Japanese-Language Proficiency Test Certificate of Result and Scores" is issued for the purpose of admission to advanced education or finding employment. This certificate contains fail/pass results and scores for each scoring section. It can be used as official proof for schools and companies.

Organizations that accept requests for certificate issuance differ by location where you took the test. Please select your test location.

<About other countries>
Following the lifting of the Declaration of a State of Emergency on COVID-19 in all prefectures as of 25th May 2020, we have decided to resume the application for certificate issuance on June 1st.

* For individuals who took the old test in 2009 or earlier, a certificate that contains pass/fail results and lists the test sections and scores of the old test will be issued. Please refer to "FAQ" to see how the old test would be compared to the current test.
