My school cancelled my ARC on me approximately one week ago and I have a very short time to leave the country or find possible solutions. The owners informed me that when we mutually decided to end the contract that they would not cancel the ARC and give me time to transfer/change to another school in order for me not to have to rush around or fly out of the country to avoid a possible overstay. I then contacted them and they told me that it had already been cancelled to allow the “new teacher” the chance to receive an ARC with them. I really do not have the cash to be flying around if there are other options that someone may know of. I have also read in another forum that your work permit could be cancelled and not your ARC, thus avoiding the fines that accompany an overstay here in Taiwan and giving you the option of remaining here for a period of time - is this true??? If anyone knows anything about this or about extensions, ARC vs. work permit cancellations, other possibilitites, etc. please contact me ASAP!
Thanks so much for your help.
