Thanks very much. I have now been able to communicate with them.
i passed there yesterday and the line was out to the street, that was at 07.50 am, better get your skates on if you are part of the june cut off crew
Do you have to have a pass to get into Immigration or always allowed M-F? Also, someone was saying that we are still required to leave before our one year tourist stay is over. I thought the 3 year card they gave me meant that I no longer have to do this and can stay on a tourist visa for up to 3 years before having to exit the country.
Can still enter M-F no problem. As for length of stay it varies per country. American can stay up to 3 years now without exit on tourist visa.
I so appreciate you confirming this!
This is the most generous visa I have ever heard of . Most other countries require you to leave after 2 or 3 months, and some countries do not allow a return for several months after you leave. I can only guess the reason has something to do with illegal immigrants overstaying and others abusing the system.
I was told that some were there at 4am and it did fill up quickly long before 8 am so those walking in at 8 am were surprised to learn it was too late and all filled up.
All persons on a 9a tourist visa can stay for 36 months.
