So I get a Tourist Visa, do a demo for a school to get hired (and demo’s are now illegal, and they can deport you if they find you in a class with students when you don’t have a work permit) I get hired, and they apply to get me a work visa. When the ARC is being processed, government officials come into my school and one takes my picture with her phone camera while I was in class teaching. I took all the steps that were told, and did everything right. But because I didn’t have my arc in my hand yet, they are going to fine the school 120 000 - 750 000 and deport me. The school called whichever government acency the same day, and they said my arc was approved and that I could work, so why am I being deported???
This government is seriously twisted. When Chen Shuei Bien opened his big mouth, and the economy started slipping, thier solution is to go to the rich buxibans and crack down on all the foreign workers, to generate money. Meanwhile, I have to say goodbye to the girl I’ve been living with for the last year and a half, my band I just started, basically my life is over and I have to start again. :loco:
I know many people here with no degrees, who work while having student visas (and still don’t know much chinese) and they can still stay, while i took all the proper steps, but I’m the one being deported. The Government here does not care about white people, they just use them, and abuse them, and deport them at their own whim to suit thier own purposes.
This has left a bad taste in my mouth about Taiwan, and if anyone asks me anything about Taiwan, I know my opinion is not going to be a positive one.
