I’ve read a lot of comments about people being “grilled” at the taiwanese consulates (HK, Macau, okinawa, etc) when they have applied for a visitor visa (for their visa runs).
I would like to get a 60 day visitor visa, cos I don’t think my work permit will be processed before my current visitor visa runs out.
Are they really going to “interrogate” you if you just tick Tourism in the visa application form, and tell the officers that your sightseeing. I read one post from a Canadian back in 2006 I think, who said that he had the director at the Macau consulate screaming at him, calling him a “dirty American” when he maintained he was “sightseeing”. Some replies to this said he should have just been honest and told them he had a job lined up in Taiwan, and shown them the work contract.
So what is the best thing to say?
Where is the “hassle free” place to go for a visa run?
