I am studyinmg chinese on a student Visa. Now I got my student ARC. Married recently, my original plan was to change my status into a JFRV (going abroad getting a new visitor-visa and back in Taiwan changing that into the JFRV).
Got informed my uni will issue me a scholarchip, starting this September for a year.
It looks like scholarchips are only available for student-visa holders. Therefor I am now afraid to change
my status like originally planed. I don’t have any problem to keep my student-status, as my intention is studying very hard rather legally or illegally working, but someone mentioned I may face a problem to change my visa later in 2008 after my scholarchip will be over, as Taiwan expect me to do this change (change from student ARC to JFRV ARC) as soon as possible …
Is that true, is there any rule like this, or am I free to do whatever I want as long as I stay in this country legally ??
