  2. Thanks for that. I'll try and ask the question again then if anyone has received approval on a tourist visa with a departure flight more than 90 days from arrival.
  3. Has anyone had any success applying for a tourist visa to stay more than 90 days? I thought I had read on this forum that they had extended the special tourist visa for another year.
