An Affidavit of Support and Guarantee (ASG) is a legal document used to assure that a person will financially support or take responsibility for another individual, if the need arises. This type of affidavit is often required when applying for a visa, especially in countries where the applicant may not have sufficient financial means to support themselves during their stay.  For Filipinos residing in Osaka who want to submit notarized documents, the Philippine Consulate in Osaka is one of the offices where an Affidavit of Support and Guarantee may be notarized. This document is also commonly referred to as a “Letter of Guarantee” in Japan.

Affidavits of Support & Guarantee can be filed by OFWs residing in Osaka at the Philippine Consulate General, which is located at Twin 21 MID Tower 24F, 2-1-61 Shiromi, Chuo-ku, Osaka, Japan 540-6124. When applying for ASG, the sponsor must provide proof of residency and financial capabilities. Bank statements or an employment contract and a residence card are required as proof of documentation.

Important Reminders

  • Please be advised that the Consular Section’s notarial services DO NOT comprise writing legal documents or drafting wills, powers of attorney, deeds, or similar documents on behalf of the general public. The party using the legalization services is responsible for creating their documents according to their intended use and/or the specifications of the Philippine-based office to whom the notarized documents must be presented. On the other hand, you can use the ASG printable forms.
  • If Filipino nationals require the legalization of their documents but are unable to visit the Consulate in person for consular notarization, they can have their documents apostilled.

Please visit the link below from the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs for information on how to obtain an apostille here –

  • On the day of filing, the signatory must sign the document or documents for notarization in front of the PCG personnel.
  • For a document to be notarized, the applicant’s true legal name must match the name on their valid ID. The applicant’s signature on the notarial document must match the signature on their passport and any other valid government-issued ID.
