Takieb, would you mind asking your friend if he would like some company and to share costs?
No problem, I will ask the next time I see him. He is going on the 9th or 10th of February as far as I know.

I know I can pay a fine at the airport, but didn’t fancy a ‘ black mark ‘ in my passport as soon will be applying for retirement visas etc
If (as suggested by hhinner) you apply for a second 30-day extension, have it refused and are given 7 days to leave the country you don't get a 'black mark' against your name as it will have been done within the rules, as far as I understand it.

You do get a big "extension refused" stamp that says you need to leave in 7 days. I think he worries about that for some reason.

I have a bunch of 1-4 days overstay stamps and an extension refused stamp. Never had a single problem or question, including when upgrading to a different visa type.

Thanks folks for your advice......I’ll go with the refusal route. I’ll post if it works out OK. Can this be done at Blueport?

Yes, that's my understanding also - that the 'extension refused' stamp does not have any negative repercussions.
