GUARANTEE: If you are married to an ROC national, and have an ARC based on that marriage, I can lead you and your prospective employer through the steps to obtain a work permit in any field of employment. (Of course this assumes that the employer is fully registered.) If you follow my instructions, you will find that the entire process is very easy.
Many people have written in to question the above GUARANTEE. Some have stated that their inquiries with the Ministry of the Interior, city/county Departments of Education, Ministry of Finance, various local recruitment agencies, law offices, and even the personnel departments of their prospective employers have clarified for them that the employment of foreigners in Taiwan is subject to a large number of restrictions, and “foreign spouses” are not treated any differently.
All I can say is, the real situation is as I have stated it in the GUARANTEE. In order to save time and save face, I really don’t want to argue with all the people, departments, etc. who are misinformed and who continue to promulgate incorrect information. My only interest is in helping you to get your work permit.
I have been researching these (Employment Services Act Article 48) procedures since July of 1995 and immodestly consider myself an expert. I have put together a 20-page information packet. Much of the information in this packet is in Chinese, including some official forms and leaflets. Hence, it is impossible to post this information directly on this website. I will be happy to snail-mail a copy to you at any address in the Taiwan area.
If you qualify as a “foreign spouse” and need full details on the entire procedure for how your employer can apply for your work permit, I suggest that you first send me a private email with your name and address. If you are writing in English, please give some hints (comparison, allusion, reference, etc.) about the Chinese characters used in your address.
