Having just spent ages getting one I'd like to share the experience gained with others so they don't go through the same hassle as me. When I asked 3 or 4 different expats on how to get one I got 3 or 4 different answers! I have put it all into a pdf (it includes the list of necessary docs & ID's, example of no objection letter that works, cost etc etc.) but don't know how to post the pdf on this website.
If anyone knows how to post the pdf somewhere that we can link to it let me know.
