A friend of mine recently read in the Chinese newspaper of a few people who were drafted because they stayed too long in Taiwan. According to the article they stayed past the four month grace period given. Those people were actually considered draft dodgers in the eyes of the ROC militray according to the article. My question is if one stays past the four month grace period is the ROC military going to immediately hunt your down and draft you or is this just the point they start counting? I remember reading that if you stay past four months then they start counting the number of days afterwards and if your stay for another predetermined amount of time then they hunt you down and draft you. I also remeber reading about some new law that stated that the four month visa run loop hole was going to be closed–meaning that ones visits to Taiwan when total, equals i year then the ROC military will hunt you down and draft you. There are so many questions…? Let me summarize…
- Does the four month visa run rule still work?
- If you stay past four months do they draft you immediately or do they just start counting? If they just start counting then how long do they count before they hunt you down and draft you?
- Did they change the rules? Does the one year cummulative rule apply now?
I am currently in Reno, NV. Any information would be helpful.
