JFRV Expiring When I am Out of Country

Postby happytime » 29 Apr 2012, 00:30

Hey guys,

My wife got her permanent residence papers to Canada so we need to go back for a couple years. We will leave in Aug and my resident status (JFRV) will expire in the summer of 2013. Can I extend the visa for 3 years a year prior to the actual expiry date?

I read somewhere else that I do not need to live in Taiwan to keep the status when I am married. Is this true? Certainly I hope it is, as I don't want to do the entire process over again, should we want to return.

Thanks
happytime

I believe from past experience that you can only renew within one month prior to expiry. You'll have to come back for the trip (staying a month or so to allow for processing time of two weeks minimum), or send your passport/ARC, etc to a trusted friend in Taiwan to o that on your behalf.

Suggest you speak to NIA.

You think they would allow somebody else to do that on my behalf?

Don't forget they need your wife's Hukou too (with you as dependent) ... so, your wife and you need to stay registered on the address you have your Hukou now ...

Here is the answer from NIA http://www.immigration.gov.tw/ct.asp?xI ... 29989&mp=2

Now, since I am not going to be here I don't know what my options are?

I will answer my own question for anybody else in a similar situation. The arc will expire and I will need to come back with a fresh RCMP check, get the medical done again and put my name back on the household.

Doesn't sound terribly painful.

There is an exception to the 30 days prior. You can apply for the extension 3 months prior to the date providing you show airline tickets and a detailed explanation as to why you need to extend so early.
