Non-working spouses can’t get APRC’s (unless they work and pass the income requirement). They continue to get an ARC through their spouse.[/quote]
What situation are you referring to, Abacus? A non-working spouse of a foreigner or a non-working spouse of a ROC national?[/quote]
Can either get an APRC? I know that a non-working spouse of a foreigner can’t. Are you saying that non-working spouses of ROC nationals can get an APRC instead of a JFRV ARC with open work rights?[/quote]
Foreign spouses of foreign nationals cannot solely by virtue of their dependent status.
I did not see anything in the application guide (Chinese / English) that would disqualify non-working foreign spouses of ROC nationals form obtaining an APRC. In fact, the Chinese application guide specifically specifies the minimum salary requirement for non-ROC-spouses whereas there is no such mention for foreigner with ROC-spouse.
