I'm American about to apply for a 60 day tourist visa, and what I put on the letter I need to send in with my documents is a list of schools I plan to apply to, though I have no job secured yet. I do have a confirmed, flexible itinerary leaving Taiwan before my 60 day visa expires, as well as proof (bank statements) that I have the funds to leave at any time before the 60 day window is up. Do you still think my visa application would be rejected?
[*]Am I going to loose also the work permit so that I would need to apply for a new one in the case I wanted to get another job? Or can I use the same work permit that I got when I started to work here? don´t even remember if that´s a paper that I already have...
[*]I know that if you work for 5 consecutive years you can get a permanent ARC. How about to work, then rest, the work... and so, so I work for 5 years? can I get a permanent ARC by this means?
[*]Can I apply for joining some Chinese language classes and convert my ARC into a student VISA/ARC/whatever, WITHOUT leaving the country?
PS: in addition to the previous questions... which office should I address these questions or where can I ask for advice? MOFA? BOFA? FA-ending something?

I have a 2 year collage Diploma from a collage in Surrey England. (Its a Diploma in Multimedia Design) Grade PASS.
I completed an advanced TESOL course here in Taipei. The Cambridge one. Grade A Distinction.
I have checked the relevant websites and they all say 2 year diploma plus TESOL course is minimum requirement to obtain the working visa. (This is fact)
My application is in progress now with the school iam working at in Sanchong.
But in a conversation I had the other day with the manager of the cram school, she mentioned a possibility of my application being rejected on the grounds my diploma was not in a suitable area.
This is really worrying me now, I will be contacting the British embassy in Taiwan to see if they have any information regarding my worry, but meanwhile I was hoping someone on here might have some information or even better real experience with gaining the working visa with a 2 year diploma in an art or design area.

But I guess, depends on the clerk
hi, do you need a return ticket if you go on a visitor visa (60 day visa)? or can you just have a flight showing your leaving Taiwan? (ie flight from taiwan to hong kong)
