Hi! My first 60 days are almost up, and I need to go on a visa run. From what I’ve read, the “cruise to nowhere” is no longer operating, so I guess I’m going to do Hong Kong.
I am a US Citizen with a 60 day Multiple Entry Visitors visa that is good for 5 years.
1.) Do I actually need to go to the pseudo consulate in Taiwan to get my visa extended, or do I just need to leave the country (i.e., get my visa stamped in Hong Kong) and then come back to Taiwan (i.e., walk out of the airport, turn around and come back in for my return flight)?
2.) Can this be done on a Saturday, and more specifically, June 15th, which I know is a holiday?
3.) If I do have to go to the pseudo-consulate, how long does it take and how much does it cost?
4.) Does anyone know a good English-speaking travel agent in Taichung? Has anyone used STA Travel here? I have an ISIC card, so I can get student tickets from them if they’re cheaper.
Thanks a ton!!!
