A Thank-you for a visa matter resolved

Postby WH » 18 Aug 2005, 14:54

Over the last two-and-a-half years my wife has had difficulty obtaining a resident visa in Taiwan. The Hong Kong office also tried to refuse to issue her with a visitor visa some time ago.

I am happy to report she now has her resident visa. Without the help of Richard Hartzell, Tigerman, the British Trade and Cultural Office, and the office of PFP legislator Huang Yijiao, my wife would have been very unlikely to have been successful in her application and we would most likely have had to leave Taiwan.

We are both very grateful to the above-mentioned.

The offices of McLean Associates (advertised on this website) also provided valuable assistance in reviewing my wife's successful resident visa application for a very reasonable fee.

Great news. The only problem she has now is her choice of spouse, I suppose.
