Keep in mind that I have not done this myself. However, the consensus is that if you have been a good student for 6 months consecutively at a University or University affiliated language institute you can work for 16 hours a week on a special work permit. (wow that was a run on sentence if I ever saw one!)
Good luck! [/quote]
Not quite right. It’s six months (or one semester) if you are enrolled as a university student ie not language centre student. If you are a language centre student (even if the centre is affiliated to a uni) it’s one year (or four terms).
Also, it’s unclear if you can work 10, 12 or 16 hours a week, as different laws and regulations state different time periods.
You need to download the form at www2.evta.gov.tw/evta_wcf/chi0008_page01.htm#
Fill it in, get the stamp and signature from your place of study, get the stamp from the place you want to work, get your documents together (listed on the back of the form) and head in to the Council of Labor Affairs. From here in, you’re at the mercy of the desk clerk!
