Scuttlebutt was 5 years but to be honest, I dunno for sure.

I am thinking now's a good time... but I only got my PARC in 2013. I couldn't give up my citizenship then for family reasons...

Wondering
I like coffee


According to the rules, to be eligible for an ROC ID, an individual must have lived in Taiwan legally (whilst holding a Legal ARC or APRC) for at least 5 years and during these 5 years, he/she must have stayed in Taiwan for at least 183 days per year. Since you already have the APRC, I believe you already fulfill the above requirement....but just to be sure, hop over to your nearest HHR and inquire if you are eligible or not.

That's interesting...I haven't heard about this new APRC Rule till now. If they can relax the rule for APRC, I'm sure they can do the same for Citizenship.


Great minds think alike, my friend. :howyoudoin:

BTW, that APRC change has been around a couple of years. Same with medical tests.

Does anyone have an update as to whether the requirements for medical and police checks for citizenship are the same as for an aprc? I am trying to decide if I want to apply for the aprc or start the citizenship process. I know I don't need the clearances for the aprc (the longest I've been out of Taiwan is 3 weeks), but I'm not sure about citizenship.
