The Taipei City office has photo machines downstairs, so you don't need to run around to get photos before you go in. I think it was $120. You also need a photocopy of your passport. Again, there's a photocopy machine already there.

For the household registration, you need the official printout from the household registration office, not the registry book kept at home.

My ARC expires when I'll be out of the country, and I'm leaving the country about one month before it expires. How early should I go get it renewed? I'm assuming it takes about two weeks for the new ARC to get issued. I can take a print out of my travel itinerary, so hopefully that'll be enough proof of my travel plans. Should I go two months before the ARC expiration date, which is about 1 month before I leave on my trip?

Thanks for any advice. I tried a search, but this post quoted above was the closest I could find to my situation.

You can give it a shot. :idunno: Take tickets too, if you have paper ones. Be prepared to be told to return two weeks later to try again, or something similarly stupid.

When I've gone to renew my JFRV, it took about fifteen minutes. If I recall corrrectly, we just went in with the family record book, paid our three thousand dollars and a few minutes latter my JFRV was renewed. I think it's longer if you need to change from the paper card to the new cards.

In my experience, what Jlick says above is correct:
For the household registration, you need the official printout from the household registration office, not the registry book kept at home.


When requesting the printout, ask for the 戶籍謄本 hu4ji2 teng2ben3.

True, we had to go to the registration office to get the copy of the family registration. Once we had this, which only took a few minutes, it was off to the foreign affairs police and fifteen minutes later my JFRV was renewed.

So what happened in the end? I too will be out of the country when my ARC expires and so need to renew it beforehand.

Okay, I just called the Banqiao NIA office, and the guy said it's no problem to renew before my trip as long as I have my regular documents (passport, household registration, etc.) as well as my airline ticket information. That can be a regular airline paper ticket or a printout of an e-ticket.

He recommended that I go renew the ARC 2 weeks before my trip so I can have enough time to pick up the ARC before I leave.

In summary, it looks like they will let you renew more than one month before the expiration of your ARC, provided you have proof of your reason why you need to do so.

I'll be going tomorrow so I'll post how it went. I already have a plane ticket showing my departure so they really can't refuse me or I won't be able to get back in the country. I leave My18, my ARC expires June 30 and I return July 18th.
