Overseas ROC, No ID - How to get the TARC?

Postby andyhk888 » 08 Feb 2014, 12:42

If you don't have relatives to petition for you to get a TARC, how do you apply for one? I read that they give out TARCs to Overseas ROC Nationals for work, investing in businesses, study and on an ad-hoc basis. I'm not sure what ad-hoc basis means? I'm planning to take a year off so I don't qualify for work or studying etc. When I travel to Taiwan I will need to get an entry/exit permit. Does it mean with the TARC I wont need to get the entry/exit permit? Thanks in advance!!

IF you really need a TARC ID, I can be your "landlord". ^ ^

Where did you read this? I tried to look it up and it looks like it came from the wikipedia page,but from the description of the ARC (not the TARC, but the one for foreigners).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Resident_Certificate

Alien Resident Certificate

There are various methods of qualifying for an ARC, including undertaking sanctioned employment with a work permit, joining family members (including parents, children and spouses) who are themselves legal residents in the Republic of China, undertaking missionary work, investing in a local business, or studying at an approved institution. The relevant authorities may also choose to grant an ARC to foreigners who fit none of the above categories on an ad hoc basis.

I think ad-hoc is the hardest category to qualify for, as it means there are no rules. It's just a way to add a big exception to the normal rules, so if the heads of government suddenly decide, "We need to give this guy/gal a TARC right now ASAP in order to preserve our country and save the economy!" they can do it without having to get the person in question to qualify under one of the other rules.

The other exception I can think of is, if you are de-facto stateless (you have only the nationality of the ROC and none other, and you also lack household registration in Taiwan or any part of the PRC), then you might be given a TARC. This is mostly for the decendants of the "forgotten soldiers", http://aacs.ccny.cuny.edu/2011conferenc ... ffrey.docx

Anyways, IIUC I think the normal method is that you'd apply for the entry/exit permit first while overseas, and then after you've entered Taiwan then you apply for the TARC. But I'm not sure exactly how that's done.
