[quote=“selfimposedexile”]Here’s a question:
I’m coming in on Feb 1 with a 60 day multiple-entry visa, but my ticket out says November 15th.
Will this present much of a problem to the authorities?
can I claim I am going on vacation in Taiwan for 50 days, then going round south-east Asia for the next five months before returning to Taiwan for my final departure (thus not requiring a return-visa at the end)?
It will present a problem to the authorities. Please carefully read my post above yours and then change your flight to show a return within the time frame of your 60-day visa.
I assume you are planning to work here legally and obtain a work permit and alien resident certificate (ARC). Once you have those documents (within the 60 day time period), change your flight once again to show a return to your home country within 364 days of your arrival;ie, one day prior to your year here. There is no better way to do it unless you can get your travel agent to write up a fake return itinerary. that way, you’d only have to pay for your flight here and not make a trip home next year. But, by then, you’ll probably be ready to leave this Island and see friends and family again.
I’d be leery of claiming you are going on vacation in Taiwan for 50 days etc. The authorities weren’t born yesterday and you might find you have some hassles that are so easy to avoid by doing what I suggest.
