No, but as a Canadian, I don't think you are allowed to have a Manchester United avatar. :lol:

There is quite a new 6-month visa-free (?) option available to Brits now, which I was going to suggest looking into, but now I know you're Canadian, there is no point. Sorry.

So if you aren't allowed a visa for a year, you are suggesting coming in on what is commonly known as a landing visa (which for the British is 90 days which can be converted and allows another 90 days) which would give a Canadian 30 days?

If he lost his passport and got another with a new number it might be possible. But I wouldn't try.
“Everywhere else in the world is also really old” said Prof. Liu, a renowned historian at Beijing University. “We always learn that China has 5000 years of cultural heritage, and that therefore we are very special. It appears that other places also have some of this heritage stuff. And are also old. Like, really old.”

According to the immigration office, I would be denied entrance on any kind of visa for the year. Right now I'm in the middle of the appeals process and awaiting the decision of the appeal board. When dealing with the government nothing is quick!

Well, I think it is actually properly known as "visa-exempt entry" ( http://www.boca.gov.tw/ct.asp?xItem=144 ... e=116&mp=2 ), and thought I had heard that this was sometimes an option even if people couldn't get an actual tourism/working visa (whether this is due to oversight or is official is another thing). Since the OP isn't British it doesn't really matter anyway, unless he's willing to leave the country every few weeks.

Not so sure about that, irishstu. I know one person (Canadian) who was denied visa-free entry because he was banned. He even changed his passport, to no avail. They held him at the airport for a few hours before sticking him on a flight back to his point of origin. It would be pretty remarkable if the authorities had overlooked visa-free entry as a loophole - banned means banned in all forms, as far as I know.

Yeah, fair enough. This thread seems to confirm that too.

I was sure I'd read something about someone who did it, but maybe they were just lucky. Not recommended.

Fellow posters,

Thanks for the suggestions, but I am way past bamboozling my way back in. There is a hearing scheduled for next week during which a verdict will be given on my appeal. Should know the answer at that point. Fingers crossed.
