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.
