Hi, I posted this under the topic getting married and applying for a JFRC but nobody have said anything so I figured I would post it here and see if there are any replies... Lappy

I just went to Immigration yesterday and was successful in getting my new ARC. It takes them a week to process.

If you already have a resident visa through work, then you don't need to go to MOFA. You can go directly to Immigration. However, they told me your work ARC needs to have at least a month on it before it expires for you to apply.They asked me for:

1. ARC and passport (they take a copy and look at the original)
2. Health Check
3. US Criminal Record (needs to be translated into Chinese and notarized)
4. Local Criminal Record
5. Household Registration
6. Lease (they take a copy and look at the original)
(I'm assuming you only need this if you don't live at the address that's on your household registration)
7. Spouse and Spouse's ID
8. Application form with a photo

They were a little concerned with my photo; I gave them the normal 'Taiwanese' size, which seemed to be too small for their application form. They measured it next to their demo photo, then just seemed to let it go. Guess I got lucky. They have the measurements on the application form if you want to get the exact size though.

Good luck!

Everything went down exactly like gusbologna said, including the problem with the photo size. I happened to have a bigger photo on me though, as it was the same size as the one needed to get your US visitors visa. I was in and out of there in about 15 minutes!
Yeah! Thanks for all the help, everybody!
I can't believe how stressed I was, and then the whole Immigration step was so easy!

End quotes...

This is where I ran into problem, they told me they need two to three months and that I need to extend my ARC first and then when my student ARC is extented I can apply for the JFRC, alternatively leave the country and apply for a visitors visa and then apply for the JFRC...
So now I'm studying an extra three months... Is it normal for a country to kick you out WHILE you are applying for a Resident Certificate??? I'm not uppset, just a bit anoyed.

Don't you mean JFRV (Joining Family Residence Visa) upon which an ARC (Alien Residency Certificate)is based? Just for clarification unless there is something newer called a JFRC. :bow:
