Hello, I've read all the threads here and on the Pacific Puddle Jump
mailing list carefully regarding French Polynesia
immigration. But there's one thing I can not find.
Has anyone arrived to Tahiti
on the normal visa (90 days), return to their home nation, and then initiated the process to apply for the 1 year visa? I realize it take 3-4 months to complete this process but I'm wondering if making an initial 3 month visit in some way disqualifies you for applying for the 1 year visa.
I'm guessing the reason you don't hear much about this scenario is that it's financially illogical compared to just getting things done in advance.
