I'm not a lawyer here, but as far as I know:
I assume your friend who owns? the company and is currently in Japan will have to apply on your behalf (to a Regional Immigration Authority in Japan, probably in the prefecture/area where his company is located in) to apply for a work-permitting visa for you.

Check unde "C. What is a Certificate of Eligibility?" for the procedures. Since your friend (I assume) is in Japan and you are not, the procedure (1) with "Proxy" (your friend) making the application, will probably apply.

COE 2006/5/15 17:49
the company has to apply a Cert of Eligibility on your behalf. For requirements for Certificate of eligibility, it varies for every office. There are immigration offices that ask a lot of documents before issuing a COE and there are immigration offices that are very lax =)

No, Immigration will need to review all the documents etc, sometimes if something seems off, they will put more scrutiny and maybe ask for more documents to be sent in etc, nothing is ever a sure thing.

I'm not sure if it is a good idea to post any tracking numbers for personal documents online for the public to view, I'm often suprised when that happens.

Either case, as I mentioned before, it can take up to 3 full months for COEs to process. This seems to be the most common amount of time. Sometimes it works out earlier, or later, but 3 months seems to be the standard waiting time.
