Oh Visa Gurus of Formosa, answer this simple American traveler’s question…
I and my busty companion (Also American) each have a 60 day multiple entry Visitor Visa. In Hong Kong we were told this visa could be easily renewed twice without leaving the country. We believed them. :loco: Those were simpler days, when we had only begun to suspect how much we would one day fear and loathe the word “Visa”.
Fast forward to NOW. We have 21 days left on said visas, have learned to love Taiwan. So we have resolved to find jobs and stay. Our origional plan was to simply extend our visas for another 60 days so as to have a relaxed amount of time to build a life here. But I have now read in several places, both in this forum and others, that if we go to the Taipei Foreign Affairs Police Dept. they will laugh at us and not extend our visa.
If they laugh at us can we simply go to another Dept in another city and try again there?
Is there a simple way to make this work? Outside of a visa run?
Should we start by extending it in another city. If so, what do you reccomend? Do you have an address for the FAPD there?
Am I unduely worrying?
How shall I refer to you when worshipping you for answering? Is “exhalted” too strong a word?
