Expiry of our visa

On 2nd May our visa and our cruising permit expired. We sent an email to the Immigration office as they explained on the Bahamian government web page. Since we are German we did it one week before it expired ;o) We received an answer after 3 days that we had already expired our visa because it would last only one month! We can proof on www.noonsite.com for example that the visa is valid for 3 months. We explained the Immigration office our situation but have never received an answer until now. We tried to call them but nobody answered the phone. This meant we were illegal for the first time in a country but it seemed as nobody cared... Our American sailor friends had the same problem and neither received an answer. The good thing is that we don't need a stamp in our passport to leave the Bahamas. This makes the situation more relaxed...
