Soooooooooo. 10 days ago I went to WaiJiaoBu and took my pretty little passport, my financial statement, all the papers from my school, two photos that make me look fat, a letter or study, and a whole bunch of stuff I didn’t actually need (proof of address, health check, some pocket lint). I then proceeded to give them 4400 NT for my resident visa as they are some greedy mofos. They said “Come back in Ten days, La”
So ten days go by and today I came back. And they give me my passport and it has over my current expendable, multi entry, visitors visa (which has my school’s name as the remark) a big blue stamp (I guess since red is a good thing here, they use blue?) that says “CANCELLED Without Prejudice”. I am pretty sure that was the name of a George Michael Album, but none the less it is not a pretty thing to see on your visa. Especially when they are not giving you a resident visa.
Because my multiple entry visa is CANCELLED without prejudice I can only stay until the date on my last extension. Then I must leave.
I can, of course, come back. Which I will do with much less money than I had before. And a new, equally overpriced visa.
Has anyone else ever had this problem?
Every time I asked them why, they pointed to a thing on the ARC application form that says they don’t have to tell me why. Every time I asked them a question they just said “We don’t have to tell you, LA”
