Validate diploma in Japan 

First of all, it is important to go to the sector responsible for exchanges at the university that you have studied. Those in charge can give you an address and the best options for validation. But this process does not include a technological course unless it is recognized as superior by the MEC (Ministry of Education). 

As Japan is not part of the MERCOSUL countries, then more than a simple documentary check is needed. The validation of the diploma must be done jointly with the Brazilian government and the chosen destination, in this case Japan. The first step is to make a sworn translation and then do the Hague apostille. 

Sworn translation is necessary in Japan because the Portuguese language is not among the languages spoken. But be careful, because this translation is a legal process that must be carried out by professionals with a link to the commercial board of each state. So, nothing to access an online translator to do that eh!

To find these qualified professionals, you must go to the federal government's website and see if you have one in your state. Usually just the diploma and academic history that are translated into Japanese.

The next step is the Hague Apostille, which came into force in Brazil in 2016 with the aim of reducing the time and cost for the use of Brazilian documents abroad. This process is valid not only for the diploma, but also for other school documents, proxies, certificates, among others.

 This Hague Apostille is a certificate of authenticity issued by the Brazilian government by countries that are signatories to the Hague Convention. In the event that Brazil and Japan are on the list, therefore, no further stages of the process will be required.
