I apologize for not seeing and replying to your post sooner. The financial requirements for the APRC are for just for the previous 1 year to your application. It used to be the past 3 years, but the NIA changed it in 2009, so now you only have to show a total income of $420,000 NTD for the past year. That's simple. I mean who doesn't make over $420,000 NTD/year? Oh...as long as you haven't been under reporting your income....(read cheating taxes)timmyjames wrote:Thanks for the site. I saw this on that site:
"6. Either Income Tax (or Tax-exempt) Certificates for the past year or Certificates of skill, talent, or financial assets."
so I am guess just the last year
I have personally processed 6 APRC applications and the FAP (no longer in charge) and the NIA have ONLY been interested in annual earned income or the personal financial assets aspect for approving APRCs. They want to make sure that you have been actively working, legally, legally reporting your income, and paid the appropriate taxes on said income for the period in question. Not once have I been asked or required to provide any certificates of skills, university diplomas, or the like. They couldn't give a toss about my any of my skills, degrees, or practical experience when I applied. I had certified copies of all my university degrees etc, and all they wanted were the past 5 years of income / tax statements. That was back in the day of the FAP being in charge though and now the NIA only requires your income statement for the previous 1 year to applying for the APRC. So, if you are applying in 2011, your official income statment needs to indicate that you have successfully earned no less than $420,000 NTD gross for the 2010 tax year. That's peanuts, unless you've been under reporting your taxes, which tons of people do, and then regret later when they decide to apply for the APRC. If you want to know more about the APRC and how to apply for it, I suggest you peruse the APRC Procedures (Official Checklist) where you can get responses from all the APRC duty experts like Chris, Icon, A-ha, Fortigurn, etc.glenclif1969 wrote:"Certificates of skill, talent"
- I'm surprised nobody talks more about this 'way in' to Taiwan's APRC... Many people may not have half a mil dollars in assets, and (at this stage) I certainly don't earn the minimum annual income.... So 'Certificates of skill, talent' maybe a good option if I have a Masters Degree in TESOL or similar... ALSO, assessing people on qualifications is how most other countries do permanent residency.... So I'd appreciate any further info... For example, exactly what academic/professional skills are valued by Taiwan (for APRC)?

According to SatTV's divorce document, he did get joint custody for his son. Check the proof out here on the 4th posting of this link. -------->Custody Agreement.
