Ok. Thanks for clearing that up.


No problem. The work visa laws are really unfair compared to what most western nations offer foreigners. It's a bit difficult to get your head around it if you view it from a western cultural perspective. Once you've done your time and got an APRC (or married a local) it's all gravy, but up until then it's shite.


Yeah. Does the same go for Mainland China do you know? I assume there are similar laws (?)

I don't have personal experience. I think there are some threads discussing work visas in China in the legal forum. From what I've read Taiwan has pretty much the worst (from the foreign employee's perspective) work visa rules in East Asia. There are many ways to skin a cat in Taiwan, though :wink:
