Hi Everyone! I’m new to these forums and I’ve been in Taiwan for close to two months now.
I’ll be heading back to the States on August 31, but I’ve run into a problem. I have a multiple entry visitor visa, but my 60 day limit is approaching. Immigrations is asking for an insane amount of documentation (which I’m sure most of you are familiar with) in order for me to be granted an extension (not to mention the fact that the guy I talked to said faxes and copies are illegal and they must see all original documentation), and taking a trip to Hong Kong is just way too expensive. At this rate, I’ll have overstayed for about 11 to 12 days.
My question is, other than the $3000NT fine, the possibility of my visa being terminated, not being able to enter Taiwan for a year, and apologizing and promising I won’t overstay again, are there any other things I should be concerned about? I’m sure this question has been asked numerous times, but I just want to make 100% sure I’m not going to get screwed over for overstaying because immigrations asks for documents that no sane traveler would ever carry with them. Thanks for any help!
