Thanks again NCS!

I made my application yesterday. It took all of 5 minutes, and Mr Liu is indeed fantastic. I was impressed by his English fluency.

Just to confirm it is working well if you follow Northcoast surfer's to-do list.

I am in Tainan and did all by regular mail and it took exactly one week to have the OWP in hands. I did even send an envelop with stamp but they send it back to me so one free stamp for me ! The only extra copy i did was the application (with picture and chop).

so now, I am free to work wherever I want (but no teaching job) that is a very nice feeling !

Thanks Northcoast Sufer, I went to apply for my work permit yesterday and your step by step process was flawless. :notworthy: I went in yesterday afternoon and it only took 5 min. Unfortunately, Mr. Liu wasn’t there to help me. I had a woman that didn’t speak much English instead. No big deal because I was fully prepared.

I do want to mention that if you want to pick up your working permit yourself make sure you tell them this right when you go to the next counter after you pay. The woman files your application at the next counter just assumed that I wanted my working permit mailed to me. I ask her when I could pick it up and she said, oh sorry I thought you wanted it mailed to your address. So she didn’t even give me the option and she was unable to reverse the process. So I was pretty upset about that because I am never home when the mail carrier comes to my house. Oh well, I will live.

Also Northcoast Sufer noted that if you want it mailed to your house then you will need to fill out another form, but that was not the case for me. Once she gave me my receipt, she told me that I was finished.

so just to keep it alive,

my APRC is updated to the new address (cost nothing to do that, nice!) so do I have to do redo the paperwork for OWP or just keep it this way (no address is written on my OWP)

Sorry. I hadn't seen your previous posting. :oops:

Answer: You only need to re-do your OWP when you renew your passport because your passport number subsequently changes. That's it. You're good until you need to renew your passport. Keep working! :bow:
