Long story short, my girlfriend’s moving to Taipei from Puerto Rico at the end of July, following her graduation from uni.
Today, she found out that UPR will take at least a year to process her diploma.
Naturally, she can’t afford to wait a year in order to work, as a diploma is needed to qualify for an ARC.
I read online that if she has a transcript and graduation certification letter from her university, then she could get a temporary work permit until her diploma becomes available.
Does anyone know if this is true? If so, would many schools be willing to engage in that process, given the extenuating circumstances?
I would really appreciate any advice on the matter, as she’d much rather work legally with an ARC, rather than deal with visa runs, etc.
