Has there been any changes to the “1 year prison sentence” as described by @Northcoast_Surfer.
As of 2019, do people still need to wait for 1 whole year on a TARC (and not travel anywhere) before they can get their Taiwan ID ? Or, are there any exceptions to the rule ?
How about high-level professionals or plum blossom card holders (who were allowed to retain their original citizenship) ? Same rule for them too ?
