It’s now 7 years i am living in Taiwan. Due to recent change in Govt. Law for APRC application i went to enquire for my case in Bancao Immigration office, they said i am not eligible for APRC because my visa is broken during 2007.
I got my first resident visa on 08 Aug 2002 (My First Entry into Taiwan with visitor visa is on 04 Jul 2002). During 2007 on 29 Jul 2007, i had to leave Taiwan to get a new visa due to my HR delayed in applying for Work Permit. I got a new Resident Visa from Hong Kong on 30 Jul 2007.
According to the First cluase in the law one has to stay continuously 5 years and second clause says 183 days in each year.
I am bit confused about the first cluase 5 years continous stay. In fifth year i have lived more than 183 days does this fulfill the first cluase or do i need to stay until 08 Aug 2007
(according to my resident visa) to complete the 5 year.
Please someone help me to clarify.
Thanks in advance,
