Actually, in my passport they gave me a multiple entry stamp in addition to the ARC and resident visa. But to tell the truth, I’m not sure If I had to ask for it or they just automatically gave it to me. :loco:
In all other instances you DO need proof of onward travel, not necessarily an actual ticket. I’ve learned that the hard way! Just ask your travel agent to reserve a flight for you two weeks after you are scheduled back in Taiwan. You don’t have to pay for it.
You’ll get an itinerary document from, say, China Airlines, and it will have your official reservations on it, wiht the confirmation number and whatever else. All of this is completely legal and proof of onward travel. You don’t have to worry about cancelling it unless you pay for it. If you don’t personally confirm it, then they’ll just sell the seat.
Trust me, it saves a lot of time haggling with wary check in attendants.
