Retirement Visa Extension

Post by ric » Mon Apr 24, 2017 9:59 pm

Greetings,
How early can you apply for your retirement visa extension of temporary stay ?
I know the answer is in this forum someplace but I can not seem to find it.
Thank you.

Within 30 days prior to the visa's expiry date.

Good time to extend your visa now, I arrived at Immigration 11:20 with my partner and both processed and out by 12:00.

We went the day before to check on the paper work required and was given a sheet showing the requirements, just a couple of things to beaware of:

At the same time as we applied for the visa extension also, completed a new 90 day reporting form and multi entry visa application.

The sheet showing the requirements said photos required should be 4cm X 6cm but the officer said normal passport sized photos were better.

As well as the letter from the bank we needed to 2 photocopies of our bank books showing the pages for the last three months.

Also 3 photocopies of our passports, front page plus all pages showing original visa and all previous visa extensions.

If you don't have copies of the originals you can always use the facilities at the office.

Some offices have been allowing extensions to be done up to 45 days early for a while now but I'm not sure if HH is one of them.
If it makes a big difference to the OP (ie traveling), it's probably worth asking the question.
