I just renewed my JFRV two weeks ago and I didn't need proof of any vaccinations. I did need to show them a water bill because my home address is different than the one on the household registration. The bill was in my wife's name but they didn't care about that.

Hi, I'm due to renew my JFRV (ARC) soon, could someone please confirm procedure. This is my first renewal, and there have been no changes in circumstances since first issued.

1. Household registration print from district admin centre
2. Current ARC
3. Passport
3. $3000 for 3 years

I'm assuming no health check required and I need not bring my wife's ID or passport.

Is new ARC issued on the spot?
(Would like to avoid hassle of going to NII again to collect new ARC)

Thanks a lot

I'm also soon due for a renewal. I believe you also need to bring two passport sized photos. And I'm pretty sure you need to come back the next week to get the new card.

They should be able to mail it to you for NT$26. Not sure if it's sent registered mail or not. It's a big trip for some people to make it to the NIA, so saving one trip to pick it up may well be worth the $26.

Thanks all.
The NT$26 postage is worth it, else I'll have to take half day off work.

How do you ask for the detailed version? The one I had last time was just one page. Do you know what the detailed version is called in Chinese?
Thank you!
And, can you send somebody else to go pick up the new card?

I needed:
2 passport sized photos
Passport
Old ARC card
HHR form which was only one A4 paper
$3,000NT for 3 years

It took themn 2 weeks and then I picked it up. There is almost never a long wait at the Yuanlin NIA office in Zhanghua County

You can get them to post it.
