Seems a silly question I’m sure but is a correct address for an ARC important? Just applied for mine. Woman at the NIA asked me about my address but I didn’t have anything on me, and there’s nothing listed as being required. I may have some document somewhere that is a rental contract but then again since it’s in Chinese it could just as easily be a guide to good housekeeping. Anyhow the woman behind the counter twinked out my answer and wrote something else, no idea what. Did ask if I should bring in papers when I picked it up but was told it wasn’t required, so I’m a little confused. Did acquire an ID number last time I was in Taiwan so I’ve an address in the system - also unproven, but that’s old. Anyone have any ideas? Prefer to avoid any charitable donations to the government if I can.
Tried applying for the re-entry permit at the same time but think I was turned down for that? My Chinese is pretty [strike]limited[/strike] non-existent! Probably should have asked for an explanation in English. My fault. Can possibly inquire when I pick up my ET card next month.
Oh while I’m asking questions, I was told you can only get ARCs for single semesters. While I was trying to look up info I discovered I must have paid for the full year version, or is there no difference? Just curious. Sorry little tired but I thought I should chase this up sooner rather than later, which possibly means I’m overlooking old threads with answers, assuming said answers are still valid?
