My anarchist friend says that award goes to Hong Kong. Vancouver, Canada requires proof of income to grant a 30-day, yet this is automatic (as per recent changes) for many nations anyway, right? Is Canada included? I fully expect that the local office will tell me that the landing visa is only 14 day when in fact it is discretionary or actually 30. This is my experience with other countries - foreign embassies don’t really know what goes on once you hit the tarmac.
If I had a bank account will thousands I wouldn’t be going to Taiwan! Since it’s possible to borrow cash, sit it in the bank, apply after a few months, and then repay the loan - it seems like a futile gesture in bureaucracy. Confucious - thy name is paper work.
But my question was actually where is the simplest place. Home country it is not in my case.
The same malcontent Asiaphile told me that it’s a well-known ‘secret’ - you fly to Hong Kong and to see one travel agency that does this routinely.
