I just found out about the 183 days/2 year rule for those born on or after 1985.
"If you were born on 1985 you cannot have a total of 183 days of residence in Taiwan within the past two years."
Is there any possible way that you could side step or delay this rule? Anyway what so ever?
One thing I read was that if you are here studying Chinese(enter with a student visa) then the duration that you study for in Taiwan will not count towards the 183 days. The 183 days starts counting only AFTER you have completed your studies. Can anyone confirm?

But with the ARC you can only go over 4 months two times. Your third visit cannot exceed 4 months.
So if you have two visits 11 months 11 months. Your third visit and every visit after that cannot be more than 4th months.
simply put with an ARC you need to fly out once before a year arrives.(364 days). But you can only do that twice.
