Tip1: Having a visa agent makes your life much easier at Immigration as you can skip those long lines and only have to go there once instead of 3 times.

Tip2: Wear appropriate clothes and shoes when you go to Immigration. Tank tops, flipflops and boardshorts are not only impolite but they may refuse any further assistance for you as well.

Tip3: Pay attention to your visa expiry date. In case of overstay you will have to pay a daily penalty.
