Don't remember how much it cost, but on the form you fill in at the visa office, where it says how long do you want it for, I wrote "as long as possible" or something along those lines and I got 12 months and a re-entry red one too. I'm saying don't ask for 6 months, ask for more! lol

I expect you already paid LE10 for the "squiggle" so about another LE54 I think to get the 6 months visa.

Not necessarily so here in the land of ''the grand scheme.'' I paid 8Le for my first ''squiggle'' then paid 64ish Le for the six months visa, then got kicked out. Then re-applied only to pay another 10Le for a second squiggle, then got my visa. So where do all these squiggle payments end up?

Bit of a sticky day as usual, 175le in the Steinberger reading my new 45le novels,
loved the A/c in the visa office, that geezer that shouts a name like gorg really loudly, had me in fits.
No hassel as usual flipped him a pen saying I used to blow his Mum a kiss and give her my love....
Mind you, it is tiring the East Bank (the Dark side) for 5 hours even supping in an empty Steinberger...oh well!...8)
