The latest news is that we are still without a visa extension. On Tuesday we met with our new sponsor to collect our invitation letter. We planned to visit immigration the following day.
I happened to ask our teacher later the same day if she would call immigration to check what we needed and it turns out we require a letter from the Labor and Welfare Service Agency. The sponsor has to register us with them, which they are currently doing but this can take up to two weeks.
Arghhhhhhhhhh! Bureaucracy has never been a personal favourite process of mine but this is nail bitingly tense.
We have until June the 1st to sort this all out. It is now 16th May which leaves us 16 days to resolve everything. I know, 16 days. It is a real life drama. Will they? Won’t they?
More as and when we have it.
