I will be moving to Taiwan (from Australia) to do a 6 month internship, a month of travel and then a semester of university after that. I have questions about my visa.
- I am in the process of getting a “Visitor Visa for Internship Purposes” which I have told will be valid for 180 days (I have a work permit and the internship is paid) . However, I will be arriving a week or so earlier than my internship starts (to settle and attend a non work related conference) meaning that the total time from entry to the end of my internship will be more than 6 months. Are these types of visas able to be extended? If I travel back to Australia during my internship will this “reset” my 180 days? Will this impact on my ability to obtain a student visa for my studies later?
Any tips or advice would be much appreciated.
