The President's is my neighbor

Image
I live in an area called Diego Martin. It is across the major road from the school and the neighborhood called Westmoorings. The newly elected President lives in my neighborhood.

 For our visit to the immigration office we were told to make sure our work permit was in our passport together with the bond document (required by the government. The school had to have proof that it was responsible for us financially). We also needed to walk with a copy of your lease and rent receipt, which we could get from the school accounts office. We needed proof of funds (our appointment letter or first payslip, we could also get this from the school Accounts Department). We needed passport pictures x 2 per person. We needed to make a copy of the bio data page of our passport. We needed to take originals and copies. The copies will go into out immigration file. We needed to be sure we received/asked for the hea…
