bit of an unpleasant surprise today when i found out my daughter needs a valid taiwan visa in her foreign passport in order to attend an international school. i assumed wrongly that her foreign passport would be enough. she was among the early kids who got a taiwan passport once the law was changed in 2000. the option was available to get an arc then but it simply seemed more convenient to use the taiwan passport when entering taiwan and she’s always done so since then.
in order to get the visa she has to leave taiwan, apply for the visa overseas and return on the foreign passport. the ministry of foreign affairs outlines all the necessary procedures for this specific situation so i don’t believe there will be any problems. still has anyone done this and have any experience to report? it would be much appreciated.
