Attention to all school sponsor parents...
Next week my kids gonna back to Chung Hwa school so on 26th dec i go to immigration extending my kids visa n passport (expire on 31st), unluckily i was being inform that...we can't do it 4u, u need to bring your kids to KK Brunei Embassy for his extention, the officer fax the receipt to kk (in front of me) and ask me to come back 3 days later to pick up document bring alone to KK.
3 Days later ...today, i was inform by the officer our application being reject without any reason. When i seeking help from senior officer, he told me they have change the rules since last month, all school sponsor student will be reject/refuse by immigration, that's mean your kids can't study in Brunei anymore unless they are independent sponsor by parents, i think this changes will affected few thousand foreign workers which salary less than B$1800.
When i still hanging around visa department more than 12 kids extension being reject (some even study here more than 5 yrs), i can tell from their face how upset they are cos' all the parents keep calling friends seeking for help including me. Lastly, when i ask one of the officer is there anyway to let my kids continue study here, he said.....hantar ia balik kampung sekolah lah...
