And with the current exchange rate it is a perfect time to recoup investments made in the past.

and I did not care for I am not a criminal or overstayer.
Then they made it more difficult for getting a visa,
and I did not care as I could still easily get a visa easy & legal.

And I do not care yet as it is easily done by internet.
