I have taught in Taiwan a few years ago, and for the most part liked it. The main reason I left was due to the hassle and control relating to work permits.
Basically, I have two questions.
Could a person get a 2 month visitor visa at the TECO office where they live (mine being NYC) with out an invitation from an employer? As I remember they were very stingy at the NYC office and Thailand was even worse. This was even with an employer invitation in NYC and student type in Thailand.
I want to avoid having to do a visa run right after finding a job.
My second question is in reguards to the new laws about having 2 jobs or 2 work permits at the same time. Could a second work permit be obtained with out the original employer knowing and if so may the second job be part time?
