company closure and residency

Postby taipeitos » 19 Dec 2005, 10:48

There're rumours in my company that it might be closed around May next year (Lao-ban is not interested in doing this business anymore). My contract and ARC expires at the end of September. I want to know if I have to leave the country after the closure of the company, or I can stay legally till the expiration of my ARC?

Something similar happened to me. It is risky. You had better start getting some other purpose for residence lined up (work, study or marriage). I would also advise you to go and seek advice from a labour rights NGO such as the Labour Rights Association and/or an immigration law firm, specifically ML McLean.
