Is there an option to get a visa in Okinawa? I'm looking at doing a visa run to HK on Thursday, but haven't got the tickets yet. And if Okinawa would be cheaper, I'd rather go there.

There is a TECO (TECRO) in Naha.

Hi,

Anyone knows about a cruise/boat for a cheap visa run?
I checked Star Cruises: the cheapest price I saw is a bit less than NT20000 for two persons, and only if you are a Taiwanese citizen or a permanent resident. That's not really useful for a visa run...
As going to a Chinese island, the problem is the visa that is really expensive.

Any advice?

Okinawa is worth visiting. I enjoyed my visit there once on a visa run. TIckets were slightly cheaper then to HK at that time. Took Japan Air Asia who treated this sector like a domestic flight. No wine / alchohol on board. ONly soft drinks. And you get a paper box with a sandwhich . Not a real meal.



Hotels in Naha are reasonably priced. Only the resorts at the beach are expensive really.

Urodacus is there isnt he? HE can certainly point you in the right direction I would think.
