Please you expats, help me and others if you think anything is wrong or could be improved or needs to be updated, since the immigration laws and regulations can sometimes change very fast. eg. when the militaries came in charge in 2006, the rules tightened that much that one didn't feel welcome anymore.
Since 2008 however, as far as I understand there's a certain degree of relaxation and even though some rules still officially exist, immigration will usually not follow them up.
Also realize the prices go up the more you go down in the flowchart.
