Just wondering… what is the standard cost that a school may charge a teacher for attaining a work permit and ARC? I know that the larger institutes in Taiwan supply this free of charge, but if they do stick you with a fee, how much is it? I don’t know if it’s relevant, but I’m Canadian.


The only things you should have to pay for are your medical and ARC. It is about $600NT for the medical and $1,000NT for the ARC. Obviously, you need to pay for photos too. Your school should not take any money from you.

It’s been a while since I renewed - I hope I’ve remembered everything.

Enjoy Forumosa!

The cost of the medical varies from hospital to hospital according to I paid $1000 NT for it at Chiayi Christian Hospital.
