I just received my ROC passport and temporary entry/exit permit visa. I'm planning on getting my ROC ID as well but skeptical about how to receive the Overseas Chinese status on my passport. After much reading, I know that the usual process for Taiwan born people living/working abroad who come back to Taiwan (and want to go back out again) need to prove their foreign residency with an ID and some sort of proof that they lived there for a certain period of time. Now if I'm a foreigner already and get my ROC ID, do I automatically get the overseas chinese stamp? Or do I still need to prove my residency and prove that I lived in my country for a certain period?

You can get the Overseas Chinese Stamp (僑居身分加簽) by visiting your local Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (台北經濟文化辦事處).
Do a quick search on Google and you can find their contact details.
I don't remember exactly what documents would be required for the stamp, you'll have to ask them.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has an application form for this very procedure.

On the iPhone, hit the Space bar twice at the end of a sentence. You get a period, a space, and a capitalized letter at the beginning of the next word.
