Overstay then apply for residency? Bad idea?

Postby MJoyLaufer » Wed Jun 01, 2016 7:29 am

Hi all,

I am in the process of getting a residence visa but I'm sure my paperwork won't be completed before my tourist visa runs out. Will it create problems for me with the authorities if I overstay my visa while I complete my work visa? It might be an overstay of 2 months. Does anyone have experience with this?

Thanks so much,

MJ

If you submitted your paperwork before your tourist visa expired then there shouldn't be a problem.
