First post here, I joined the Taiwan club on a landing visa and want to start studying at the Mandarin Training Center. I have prepared everything but just wanted to ask a couple of questions, I found some general points in most of the posts but they were out of date!
I am enrolled in MTC for approximately 3 months (I have signed up for a semester) but I want to study for 1 year approximately, now on the application form it states “proposed date of departure from Taiwan”…should I put 1 year from now? Or should I play it safe and put 90 days from my entry date?
I got some photos from a photobooth next to the Wellcome on Xin Sheng road, although they don’t quite measure up to the box, a very fine white border can be see, is this a problem? Does anyone know where near the Guting station I can get other photos taken, or should photos from a booth be ok?
I do not have a flight leaving Taipei within 60 days of issuing the visa, is this a big problem? Maybe this ties in with point 2 if I intend to stay for approximately 1 year. Should I have a flight or can I get away without one? On the HK visa website it doesn’t state that you need one.
I will be showing three bank accounts, 1 with approximately £4,000 in and another with £2,400 (joint account)…I also have a business account which I will be drawing funds from, that has a substantial amount in it. Will this be enough, I couldn’t find a fixed amount for award of the visa, it just siad a bank account with “sufficient funds.”
If anyone could shed any light on these questions I would really appreciate it!
PS. The visa run is Tuesday , hoping to pay extra and get it all done in one day as I land at approximately 8am.
