Those seat belts connected to the doors were the worst. I have a 92 GTI that has them.

Since it is just a switch you could definitely bypass it.
From the wiring diagram (see below) it looks like the easiest is to pull out the Starter Interlock Relay and place a jumper wire across 87 to 30. This should have no detrimental effects since the ignition switch controls when power is applied.
