Hmm, I guess I better inquire about it with the NIA then. :ponder:
My ARC would expire this coming December, and at that time my stay in Taiwan would be 4 yrs and 11 months already. I was hoping that, instead of renewing my ARC for the same purpose (I don't plan to immediately quit anyway haha) maybe I'll try to apply for an APRC instead...
OR, should I just re-apply my ARC again, make sure I hit the 5-year mark first, then finally apply for an APRC? :eh:
(reread the 2nd option and it seemed more practical haha, but feel free to let me know your thoughts)
