My JFRV ARC will expire soon.
What are the procedures for renewing?
What documents are needed?
Any and all help is appreciated.

Go to the foreign affairs cops.
Take your ARC, your passport, a copy of your wife's household registration document with your name added to it in the "remarks" section, and NT$3,000 (for a 3-year ARC). That's it.
Easy.

Any update on this given the recent changes? There have been a LOT of changes in the past two years since this ...

I'm about to redo mine JFVR for renewal, but I'm trying to get a heads up BEFORE I go to the police office in Banqiao...

Do I still go there?

Bit out of touch! Woops!

TKS.

Thanks for any headsup that you can give me!

Do I still need an HIV test? I remember three years ago, and every time before that, I did.

In fact, the old regs stated 2 pictures, a current passport, an ARC card, a blood test, and a copy of the family book, along with cash and an application form.

Mmm... Wonder what's changed.

You don't go to the police. You now need to go to the National Immigration Agency. In Banqiao it very close to the old foreign affairs police. Other side fothe road a couple of hundred metres in the direction of Zhonghe.

I have news. Good news from Notting Hill. The consignment of white gold for Mr Anderson has arrived.

I found some information thanks to the tip about the National Immigration Agency. This is the PDF handbook link.

One copy of application form
Passport
Residence visa
Transcript of spouse's domiciliary register (issued within the recent 3 months with record of marriage registration)
Two 1" front, hatless, bust photo, taken recently
Fee for certificate (NT$1,000 for one-year validity)

Let's see if that's what is the current rule!

Yup, just got back. Min Ju Rd #168. If you were standing in front of the old police station looking at the gas station, you would go left, cross to the other side of street and walk down the road.

Very nice folks.

Yup, and 500NT for a new ARC if yours is as ragged as mine was.

Pick the new one up a week from today.

I did it last month. I brought my passport, my ARC, and a copy of the household registration. They didn't even look at the household registration, and just stamped the back of my ARC and put a new re-entry sticker in my passport. I only got 2 years though, because my passport expires in 2 years. From start to finish it took less than 5 minutes.

No health test, either.
