I’ve checked all the archived threads, but most people seem to have gotten married in their own country or married to a Taiwanese. I’m coming over in March to marry my fiance in Taiwan. We are both American, and he’s working as an engineer for a foreign company. I won’t be getting a job right away as I’ll be occupied with other things, but I plan to look for work after 5 months. I’m wondering about several things.
What do we need to prepare to get legally married in Taiwan? Documents, what to expect, time frame. Is this marriage valid/recognized in other parts of the world? Can we get a marriage certificate in English?
What do I need before I come to get a JFvisa/resident certificate? I read a lot about medical checkups and CCRD, but he told me he didn’t need either to get his visa and ARC -which is totally different from all the other posters who I’ve read here. Will I need these?
Is there a way to get a JFvisa that gives me permission to work legally in September (remember I coming in March)? Or will I need to change my visa/ARC after I get a job? I’m a certified English teacher and plan to try to work at an international school or teach ESL in a high school/college setting when the second semester starts.
A lot of questions, but I don’t seem to be finding the answers I need on websites and in discussion forums.
