I definitely got the old angry one in Bangkok. My advice for anyone getting the Visa there is to just get your number from the nice security guy, walk into the next room and immediately hang a left. Do not glance, turn, or even acknowledge the “info” desk with the angry Taiwanese lady. She will hassle you and tell you that you will not be able to get the 60 day Visa and try to talk you into just arriving on a landing visa. I had all my documents ready, photos, photocopies, etc… and this seemed to piss her off even more. She takes herself very seriously, but I honestly doubt she has any real authority and is simply the info desk girl.
Just get your docs, a number, and walk into the main part of the office hang a left and have a seat. The people at the windows are all Thai, and therefore quite nice, friendly, and helpful. If the old hag does manage to stop you, just ignore most of what she says and proceed anyway. She is like the Taiwanese welcome committee, just to give you a taste of what is to come when you arrive in Taiwan.
I need to go back in a few days to get the work Visa, hopefully I can sneak right by her and I don’t have any problems.
