[quote=“500CBFan”]Have read thru threads about the Singapore visa office and am wondering if anyone has been there in the last six months for a new visa. I’ve been in Taiwan for two years (six of those months just hopping in and out on my passport), and by the time I’ll need a new visa (October), I’ll have two years of study completed. My goal is to enter university next year, because I still don’t think my Chinese is good enough to attend classes. So, I’d like to know the odds of the Singapore office granting another visitor visa that can be extended for another six months, getting me through April 2008, by which time I will have applied for university and should (hopefully) be able to get the ARC.
I’m determined to stay and study, even if it means going back to the 30 days here/leave & come back for 30 days routine. But I’d obviously prefer some nice person OK’ing my visa, and know it ain’t gonna happen in Hong Kong![/quote]
I’m not saying it’s a myth, but between 1999 and 2003 I applied 5 times a 60 days visitor visa with extensions in HK, and I never got any problems for getting it. (the first time they even helped me to write the visa form )
Maybe to arrive at the visa office with a big smile help a lot?
