You are 100% wrong.Amazing. You hijacked the thread with the first comment. An all time record.
It has ZERO to do with the overstay fee.
The article addresses migration. Look up the word migration.
Your premise is fallacious. Not surprising though.
Migration law is what it is about. People that overstay are violating migration law.
The overstay fees were made up to work around people actually following that very migration law by becoming legal residents.
Paying a fee upon leaving does not mean that the stay was legal. This is stated on the Migracion website at the link I pointed out.
The minister mentions that the law has not been followed properly and the way it was not followed properly was by allowing people to
stay illegally and pay a fee when they leave.
It is not hard to understand at all if you look up that law mentioned by the minister.
