American Immigration Process, for rich people only?

From the AIT website

Wow.

I think an ammendment needs to be made to the little book that Lady Liberty holds…

“Give us your tired, weak, and poor…and we’ll send them right the fuck back to you…BEEATCH”

My ARC costs me NT$ 1000 each year. As does my son’s ARC.

Over the years, its more expensive to live in Taiwan… and that’s not even giving me permanent residency.

you definately have a point there, but it seems better with Taiwan since it’s not expected that you suddenly come up with that cash. My wife recieved her packet 3 (essentially the packet that has the Visa Interview info on it)four days ago, and in 2 weeks we are expected to have the $335(plus the new $45 surcharge) for the visa. We are really only given 1 week to come up with 6,000NT to pay for a Medical, since it takes another week to process it. Not knowing about the $335 is definately our fault since we could’ve researched the fees a little more…but it’s just not possible to know the price of the medical exam until they send you the sheet with the acceptable clinics on it. 6,000NT is a lot of money to just suddenly be asked of. But, I do suppose, when looking at it in the long run and in comparison, the American immigration process does seems more reasonable than I initially thought.
