Hi there people. I know these questions have been asked in many different forms, but there is so much information for so many different circumstances and differing nationalities.
So are my particular circumstances: I’m a South African citizen (non visa-exempt) in Taiwan on a multiple-entry 60-day visa, valid until mid July. I’ve enrolled to study Mandarin at a university in Taipei and have my admissions letter in hand. The course starts in early June. As I’m nearing my 60 days, this weekend I’m taking a trip to Macau. What do I do when re-entering Taiwan? Do I need to visit a consular office in Macau to apply for a different sort of visa?
To complicate matters further, I’m taking the night classes as I’m job-hunting at the moment, and would ideally like to work during the day and study in the evening. Does getting a visa with “student” as reason for entry impact my chance of getting a work permit?
Any help with this would be hugely appreciated. I’m very confused.
