180 days visitor Visa Germany, no extension needed?

Postby fangshi » 28 May 2012, 13:54

Hey guys,

I am for two month in Taiwan now and want to stay another three until end of August. I am here on a "Visitor Visa with special remark" read Student Visa as I study Chinese at Wenhua.

So far I was under the impression that I have to extend my Visa after three month, but I noticed, that unter "Duration of Stay" it says: 180 days.

Wouldn't that mean, that I can stay for up to 6 month without the need for a Visa extension?

We had different regulations 2 years back, when I was in Taiwan for the first time, I still remember that I had "60 days" on my Visa that time and had to apply for Visa extension every 2 month.

Now I am really unsure if I really dont have to apply this time, because it just seems like such a ridiculously generous duration. ^^

Under Remarks it only says: FR + the name of the University.

I kindly ask for your confirmation that I am fine without an extension.

I would favor the 180 day stay meaning 180 days stay as it is.

Right, otherwise it would say 90 days, if I have to extend after that time period right? I was just very uncertain, because everybody was starring at me in disbelieve when I showed them my passport, because they said they never heard of such a long student Visa.

And I have to be careful to not violate my schools Visa extension permission conditions like not being absent from class to often if I would need the extension.

I am confused because I cannot find anything about a 180 day Visa on the Internet, everywhere I read that people have to extend after 90 days. :/

The duration of stay should be valid, but for peace of mind you could check with your school or even better check with the immigration people.
