I'm wondering if my student visa (I don't have a student ARC, just multiple entry visitor visa with a remark that says that I cannot work) can be changed into a resident visa or work permit in order for me to legally work in Taiwan. Can my employer apply for a work permit or resident visa even though I am entered the country on the student visa?
Also, I'm doing a visa run in a few days and would like to know if it's better for me to enter using a 30-day landing visa, my current student visa which would give me 60 days, or if I should apply for a new visitor/tourist visa and enter using that? I just don't know if the student visa can be changed into a work permit/resident visa. Which is more convenient for my employer to convert to the resident/work ARC?
Any input would be greatly helpful. I'm sorry if this question has been asked before or has been posted in the wrong section but I couldn't find any information on it in my search.
