I didn't want to go there, but you narrowed it down .. :D

A company, sponsoring the whole family, could find themselves stuck with a massive repatriation bill if the shinola turns to S**t. That what sponsorship means.


Which is what not many understand and go on the offensive for the company refusing to put a 'bloody simple stamp and a letter' ..

Well, if it was so, let me quote this friend of mine, who was strapped with a 10,000 $ fine, for 'just lending his IC to extend a girl's visa, and she is a honest and sincere girl .. ' etc. etc. the only problem was, nobody told my friend that lending an IC for the visa extension makes the person as a sponsor, and if the girl disappears/get caught in the wrong place, the sponsor gets hauled to court ... The girl just didn't tell him that she moonlighted in a KTV, and was caught ..

Well, now I don't bother trying to explain when some guys insist they are doing the right thing, by extending the visa girls they met here there and everywhere .. and sometimes for guys they meet in the church ..

Let them learn the lesson, instead of me being the bad guy for pointing out the possible outcome ...

PS: wonder what the OP is trying to make out of this pitter-patter... :D :D

Thanks SMS and Ecureilx, I get the point now. I didnt know the company becomes liable for the persons they sponsor visa for. Now it makes sense.

Cheers!

For sure, that's what 'sponsor' means.

Meanwhile I'd be interested to hear why my link that was so rapidly cast aside is not the answer :)

That ICA policy is only applicable for students, where the parents/grandparents are considered, for visa, but not for a grown up married man :D :D

Sort of the Peidu mama thing ...

Unless the OP can prove that he needs his mama ...

Cool, so there is one more enlightened soul, who will not be loose with his / her IC, in giving sponsor letters and endorsements :D :D

For that matter, to think now, I also know one restaurant owner lady, who decided to extend the visa of a regular customer in her restaurant, and the restaurant owner lady spent 2 weeks in jail, and her husband divorced her and all drama, because the beneficiary who got the visa extended was caught in PP complex in China town in some police op ...

Cheers
