    Checked the immigration prices on renewing visas today. It says "updated" but no date. I'm curious when all those express fees went into play. (I know they were there before but seems they have added some for the icard and raised the price the extension after the first 59 days.) Talking about the tourist visa here if you haven't figured by now.

    Seems to me more like a ploy to get more money and no actual "express" service is being offered. I'm also curious if the express fees will be charged if you are late or if there is only one express fee for a visit. Last time I was 6 months late and was only charged the 1k express fee plus all late fees, not all express fees I missed (which actually makes sense). So it ended up not costing all that much extra.

    Isn't the 6 month visa implemented yet? Last I heard was that it will start in June 2013.

    I don't know.
    7500 is a normal fee for 59 days+ extension if you don't have a valid ICard. Unfortunately.
