Hello everyone, I’ve been reading Formosa in the previous sometimes, but it’s my first time posting, sorry for the mistakes in the language sometimes, as I am not a native English speaker.
I have a question about extansion of my ARC. I am married to Taiwanese, but we are currently working in China mainland (next to Hong Kong). My ARC must be renewed at the end of this year, therefore I ve been wondering if it would be possible to do it somehow (through family or embassy) without me going back to Taiwan? As there is quarantine restrictions and spending 40k twd both ways on staying in hotels, also being locked down doesn’t seem bright to me.
My husband is currently back in Taiwan as his mom just passed away and it has been very expensive and stressful with staying and quarantined in hotels. So I would hope to avoid rounding this number up to 80k twd and spending 28 days quarantined, with me going there and back. It seems awfully unnecessary to just do this all to extend an ARC.
I asked my husband to call in the immigration, but he has been very busy with the funeral, and hadn’t done it yet. So if anyone has any info or suggestions, please share.
Also my husband will only stay in Taiwan till 30-31th of July this month, as he has to go back to work.
And I heard Taiwan’s representative office in HK had been closed down.
