After lurking for quite some time, I just created an account to ask this question because I’m desperate.
I’ve successfully applied and enrolled in a Master course at the National Taiwan University of Science and Technology. Classes were supposed to start this 22nd Feb. When borders closed on 1st Jan, I was told classes would happen online. Then borders reopened on 17th Feb and I am now in the process of applying for student visa to be able to attend classes.
Now the university just sent me an email telling me my tuition fee payment did not go through (despite my card being allowed for international payments and having sufficient funds). I’m required to pay by 26th Feb or I might lose my ability to study. The university advised me to “ask a friend” to physically go to the university to pay in cash. Problem is, I don’t know anyone in Taiwan.
Anyone has ever faced a similar situation? Should the bank payment eventually not work, do you know where I can find a trustworthy person who could go pay in cash for me (provided I initially transfer some funds to them via an agreed upon means, obviously)?
Thank you very much for your help.
