Damn criminals who want to help Taiwanese people for free, get the bums out of the country. It's much better if they're out drinking and womanizing. :loco:


It is not idiotic since then people could claim to be volunteering when they are actually working. They could bring in a Filipino nurse and say she was volunteering at the hospital. English teachers who get busted could claim to be volunteers. Some laobans would start holding English classes in churches and have volunteer teachers while not paying taxes on any of it.

So where do you draw the line - where does helping someone out cross the line into volounteering?

Volunteering is making yourself available to help, helping out is assisting without necessarily being previously available for said assistance. One crosses the line when one makes oneself available to help.

In Western terms, sure.

In Chinese terms....it varies.

You may be deported if you work without permit

CLA duty is to protect Taiwanese job opportunities. According with Taiwan law if you're foreigner "any labor or services rendered, regardless of whether it is for pay or voluntary" is consider as "work". You risk deportation if you work without work permit.

When western face is a requirement, English teachers and models don't really jeopardize locals' jobs, so they aren't labor inspectors' main target, however when someone reports a case they have to investigate, usually ending with a deportation.

The cases of Scott, the singer (2004); Ben, the single father (2011), Erik, the stripper (2011); S, the actress (2012); and many others should warn you about the dangers of infuriate locals and work without permit.

First I want to mention that this is not my personal opinion. I am transmitting information as a reporting function, therefore I can't certify if the sources information is correct.

"Scott is living in Hanoi, his poems and art have gotten recognition in Asia. His restriction to work in Taiwan has expired but it doesn't mean he will come back."

"Ben is still in Taiwan because he has to take care of his (Taiwanese) son."

"Eric is back in his country. We don't know much about him."..." The councilor who helped in that case keeps working to protect Taiwanese job opportunities in cases like [the dance commercial] that involve foreigners."

"S*** hopes to come back to Taiwan. Those people who were on TV complaining about foreigners working illegally in Taiwan are "helping" her. I wish she won't get even more troubles."
