PS: the company who helped us with that stuff was very good and affordable (especially when I see the fees we pay for such agents in Mainland). PM me if you want their contacts.

Great news and welcome to my island. I am sure you wife will also like being here. You can post the details of the company who helped you as the site is for sharing information.

Thanks a lot.

For your information, we went to the NIA this morning because my wife wanted to check if it is possible for her to invite her parents some times after we are all set here. The very nice volunteer lady told us that my wife visa was a kind of new stuff, actually different from the visa PRC spouses of Taiwanese citizen gets. She said that NIA hasn't think about a procedure yet for the relatives of this kind of visa holders but advice to write an explanation letter along with a visitor permit form. Funny :-)

The drawback is that they mention that my wife would not be able to work here, even if a company kind of sponsor her to get a working visa or something like this. We will dig that out anyway :)
