Is it possible to change the visa status from visitor to resident without leaving Taiwan? My boyfriend would not get work permit issued on time before we go to Taiwan so he applied for the visitor visa. I asked foreign affair office, they said it would be ok for he to switch later. However, he is only getting the visitor visa for two months and visa extension is not allowed. Does anyone have experience with this? Would he get into troubles because the visitor visa is not extendable?
Thanks for the help.
