Showing $5 million in a bank account isn't the only way to show that you possess the adequate professional skills and assets to support yourself. You can show this through various ways. Here's an excerpt from the APRC checklist. Read it and see which option would work best for you.Chris wrote:Do they still have this requirement of having this insane amount of savings? I thought they had abolished this requirement.
I don't exactly have NT$5 million (that's over US$150,000!!!) lying around.
PLEASE READ EXERPT FROM THE APRC CHECKLIST BELOW. It's option "C". However, this option is ONLY for those who have a Taiwanese spouse.bobbyanalog wrote:you mentioned that you can show them a certain bank balance if it has been consistent for a year....anyone know the magic number?...how much do you need sitting in your account for the last year to get past both the (2x local salary) and the (5millon ) rule?
When I applied for mine and one other friend's, it was during the Foreign Affairs Police era and they didn't want to see or make a copy of anything regarding my educational level, just my tax forms to show that I made at least 2x the basic wage and faithfully paid my taxes for the previous three years to applying for the APRC. Same for my friend's who applied through the FAP. For two other friends, we applied after the new Immigration agency was in charge and they too didn't want to see or make copies of anything regarding education. In fact, both of those friends haven't gone to college and don't possess a college diploma. Before getting their APRCs, one had a JFRV ARC and the other had an employment based ARC.bobbyanalog wrote:...and about the degree that is no longer recognized?...is that something that will likely be a factor in me getting my aprc?...as I said, it hasn't come up each year I renew...
Either Income Tax (or Tax-exempt) Certificates for the past year or Certificates of skill, talent, or financial assets.
