In the course of switching jobs, my previous work didn’t give me my withholding tax statement, leading to a delay in getting my new ARC processed by my new job, leading to the immigration people calling me yesterday, and then my new employer, who then emailed me last night telling me NIA says I need to do a visa run.
Other friends have told me I can go to NIA and ask for a short extension… I’ve got all my paperwork for my new ARC ready to go (unless my old work screwed up my withholding tax statement again, and it needs to be fixed) and I can have it submitted tomorrow by my new employer, so I don’t need much of a grace period here… I’m planning on going over first thing tomorrow (Thurs) morning, I was told to dress nice, show up early before they deal with any jerks and get in a bad mood, but is there anything else I should say/do? Something to convince them that it wasn’t my fault, that my old employer was lazy and poorly organized (and possibly trying to do something shady with my taxes), and that I’ve tried my best to be legal about this. I can even show them my text messages and emails from my former employer showing the delays and their stalling.
Anything I should know?
Thanks Forumosa… I seem to be on here a lot recently…
