I just finished my Chinese class at a bushiban. I will leave for a week of vacation in Japan on Aug. 22nd. My single-entry, 60-day visitor visa will expire on Aug. 12th. I don’t want to enroll in Chinese class until I return from vacation (b/c I haven’t decided whether to change schools/classes yet).
What’s my cheapest, safest plan of attack here? I will probably pay over US$120 for a new visa in Japan. Will I have much flack at the airport when I leave Taiwan (with an overstayed visa)? If so, how likely will Japan reject my visa application?
The safest plan is of course to shell out a semester’s worth of tuition now and pay to have my visa extended. This is not the cheapest, however, and really doesn’t seem worth it since I will only get 10 days’ worth from the extension (prior to leaving for Japan).
Blast those xiao3qi4gui3men that gave me a single-entry visa!
