Our son was born here in 1995. I am holding an ARC so called dependend ARC after I changed from work permit 12 years ago because my lovely wife is from Taiwan. That made life easier in view of work permits. Besides I am a legal alien in Taiwan for 30 years.
Our son (German) got an ARC based on my residence status. Then the Immigration recommended to change to my wife’s status. It is easier. I agreed.
Whe he turns 20 he would have to apply for an APRC otherwise he has to leave this country.
But it looks so complicated concerning the paperwork e.g.:
-Police record of good conduct from Germany (he never lived there)
-Prove of beinging living in Taiwan (how could he has an ARC)
-Clean health record (being under the cover of NHI as forced for a long time)
Certainly he will not change his nationality to Taiwan because he would lose his German (European) nationality. Only from the year of 2000 or 2002 the German government accepted dual nationality due to Taiwan new rules for giving birth to multinationals.
He wants to stay here and go into the hotel business. We want to give him this chance.
