In Taiwan with JFRV but no degree visiting wifes sick parents

Postby MaoMao » 18 Aug 2011, 00:54

Hello,

I came to Taiwan with my wife. I want to work here for a year or so because my wifes mother is sick and we will be staying here for the time being. I have a JFRV and from what I read opened work rights although you need to be qualified for the position.

The easiest job for me would be to Teach here but I don't not have a university degree. My question is has anyone worked on a JFRV without a degree can you explain what happened . I don't want to work illegally I would like to pay my Taxes and be a normal human being here. I assume even if I get a job the school would have to send something to the GOV? Or when I go to pay my taxes what will happen? Can I be deported for this ?

Thanks very much for your information or help
MaoMao

Which language do you want to teach?

You have open work rights so you can legally work at a cram school. If the school was sponsoring your ARC you would require a degree. As you are getting a JFRV you don't need one.

However, the school may have their own requirement that all teachers have a degree.

So, yes you can teach legally.

Is this really true can anyone out there verify this with real experience. Bigduke thanks for the reply but have you done this yourself ? Filed your taxes applied for health insurance ect.. With no degree that seems to go against some other posts I have read here. Which state you still need to be qualified with a degree even if you have a JFRV.

I believe bigduke6 is correct. Many schools will want the degree to meet their own criteria. Shouldn't be a problem finding a school that doesn't require a degree though, especially with part time work. Good luck. How's your Mandarin?

My Mandarin is ok. It's on a conversation level for simple things like food and shopping and day to day. I just really want to make sure Its ok to do this before I jump into it. I don't want the GOV coming after me or to be fined or worse departed.

You can do any job you want with a JFRV. Teach, sell sausages on the street. Anything. The government has NO say on the issue. Of course, certain jobs require certain qualifications -- you won't be able to work as a lawyer, for example, or prescribe mind-altering medication -- but other than that, anyone you can persaude to give you a job is good.

At one point seven or eight years ago Kaohsiung City was taking the position that to teach English at a Buxiban, foreigners had to have a college degree even if they did have a JFRV. I don't think anyone got deported, but I think the schools got fined and the teacher lost his job.

I have no idea if this is still the case or if any other counties or cities followed Kaohsiung's lead. I'd say go for it since the chances of deportation are pretty low.
