since most threads are already really old and also sometimes there is conflicting information, I just wanted to ask a few questions. I am currently doing visa runs on 90 days visa excempt free for almost 1 year now and I am planning to change that.
1 - Can I convert a visa excempt free for a working permit + visa without leaving Taiwan if a school wants to hire me or do I have to fly to Hong Kong for that ?
2 - Can I convert an visa excempt free / apply for a student visa without leaving Taiwan or do I need to go to Hong Kong for that ?
3 - If one of above requires Hong Kong, is there somewhere a short Guide on where to go in Hong Kong and what to do there ? If I would leave Hong Kong Airport I wouldnt even know where the consulate is and what I have to apply for (I read somewhere that for example I have to apply for a visitor visa and change that in Taiwan to a school visa, something like that ?!)
4 - If you enter Taiwan on a Visitor Visa instead of excempt free, can the visitor visa be changed into either a work visa or a student Visa
Ok, thank you guys for helping me out. I know these questions have already been answered many times, but I think some informations are outdated and some are conflicting
