[quote=“Taiwan_Student”]I am rooting for you. I had an A-hole person way back when I was trying to apply for my 10-year ARC. The man was so Anal, that he erased all the “Taiwan” and “Taiwanese” from the nationality blanks on the form and replaced it with “Republic of China” and “Chinese” I was denied the first time. But, when I came back, everything had been transformed to a very user friendly and yes, helpful office. What a difference a year made. Your guy needs to retire.
Good luck… I still would love to look up my old officer and visit his old age home to annoying him. I can be annoying as Sponge Bob. The APRC makes all the difference. I’m glad I no longer have to go what you are going through. Good luck.[/quote]
There is no such thing as a “10 year ARC”.
And as far as ROC/Chinese are concerned, these are the official names hence the government uses them. If you don’t like it ask Hartzell for a “taiwan civil government id card”.
