Company requirements to hire foreigner


One of my companies is trying to hire a foreigner (he would be the only ARC for this company with another 5 local hires) to work for us. The Gov are declining the application because our revenue over the last 3 years is not 10 million NT on average. Is there a way around this? The guy’s qualifications are impeccable and his is exactly who we need, it is easy to make the argument why we need a foreigner etc. Its just that little issue of past revenues…

Is this an absolute rule or a guideline? I hear different things from different people. Anyone has any previous experience.

Any advice would be welcome.
