My student visa continues to elude me.

I just got back from the Foreigner's Office. Apparently, the documents I submitted to prove I possess sufficient funds were not accepted. This sucks. I'm a student so they require documents that will show what "scholarships" I have earned or whatever. I'm living off a student loan, which is clearly not a scholarship. I just hope they'll accept those, or else or I'm royally screwed.

Looks like another mad scramble to hunt down more paper so I can keep the big bureaucratic monster fed. I have to admit, this whole process is confusing and frustrating. I had no problems last semester, so what's the deal?

Addendum: My previous student visa has expired, what's going to happen if I can't renew it before my tourist permit also expires? Yes, now this situation has doubled in suckage.

Ugh, I am very sorry to hear this.

I am in the process of trying to sort out a visa so I feel your pain. At least you have the ball rolling. I am crossing my fingers for you.

Hang in there! I will be there soon and then we will have 2x the paperwork fun. I think the visa gods will grant us one after the requisite number of days banging on heads on the wall.

lol lol lol. :D but i do sympathise with all the crankiness you guys have to go through. if it's of any help, it wasn't a piece of cake to obtain canadian visa as well. but it all worked out in the end. anyway, if translation or mothertongue-cooperation is needed ... you know who to call.

Lisa: hmm, I thought you were already in Slovenia? Or are you speaking of "soon being" at some meeting place today?

Thank you everyone for your kind words! I'm hopeful this will be resolved soon.

@Michael: I get there in a little more than a week (I'm finished teaching in Canada, and now I just have to get everything ready to go).
