This is the scenario: My ARC sponsor lets me go, and sends a letter to the gov’t saying that as of date X, I no longer work for them. Assuming I don’t have another visa lined up, am I entitled to remain in Taiwan for any period of time after date X? And if so, how long?
I’ve heard stories about people who’ve quit or lost their ARC-sponsoring jobs, and have remained in Taiwan for a couple months slumming and bumming around with their old Resident Visa still in their passport, and then picked up another job later on, who reapplied for a new ARC for them no problem. Is this really possible, or does said person run a real risk of getting grilled by the authorities about what he was doing in Taiwan for all that interim time, and deported or denied a new visa if he doesn’t talk fast enough?
