I am planning to move back to Taiwan this September to work in the restaurant industry. My dad's friend owns a hot pot restaurant in Taipei that my family would like to franchise (called Orange). Problem is, I have the conscription law to deal with because I was born in Taiwan. I came to America when I was 5 and I became a U.S. citizen when I was 12.
What are the chances that I will get enlisted? I read they are planning to reduce the # of draftees right now. Also, if I do get enlisted, how do I get into alternative service?
I read some info on alternative service on teaching English but is it possible to do it while I am working? I would appreciate more info on alternative service and what it entails.
P.S. By the looks of this Taiwan military recruitment commercial they don't even need humans to enlist anymore.
