Just wondering when I want to purchase car, or real estate can I use old expired ARC? before I worked in Taiwan for a year then went back to the states...now I am back staying with relative and thinking about buying car and some land...can I use the old expired ARC? and if I get new one will the number still be the same? I just want to buy car and do some investing...nothing illegal maybe if they ask me where is my current ARC I will just say it's coming and show them the old one? any advice? thanks

Of course you can't use an expired document.

I think it depends what you use it for.

I used an expired ARC for a year when I went to the bars and needed ID.

Just because it had expired, it didn't change my date of birth.

I've got another valid one now though.

How many times you gonna post about your expired ARC and ask what you can do with it?

What you want to do and already did is ILLEGAL, just get a new one ... you had one before, shouldn't be too difficult to get a new one ... and next time think and be logic before you post about your ARC ... :s

not entirely true....

if it was colder here, you could scrape ice off the car windows with it. Or wipe your arse with it at a pinch too I guess.

More to the point, and ignoring whether such things are legal or illegal, they changed the numbering system a couple of years ago, so if the ARC is older than that, the number would probably not fit in the computers anyway.

I think you should just go get your Taiwan ID ironfist.
