(December 6th 2013)I've been here for almost ninety days at December 12th and just received a border run visa until January 5th 2014. The immigration stated that I reached the allowable number of border crossings and will not be allowed the next one after January 5th 2014 and I do not believe she is correct but will find out prior to that date. It is unlimited border crossing at this present time?
