I intend to get my PR (Permanent Residency) in Taiwan. I have already been here for three and a half years. It was brought to my attention by my Chinese teacher, who is an Asian foreigner, that the laws are changing. Rather that waiting for three years in Taiwan to get her APRC, she has already been granted one after only a year and a half.
When my school was messing with my ARC, I had the chance to look at the back of a form (Multi Purpose Sheet for Information Changes for Foreigners, or something like that). It said I needed Taiwan tax receipts or info for the last three years and police reports from my home country and Taiwan for the last five years. I was always under the impression that we must be here seven years to get aa APRC, but if my teacher is correct, then I have the opportunity to apply earlier. Does anyone know of any changes to the law? Or, do you know of any info that differs from what I know? Any information would be greatly appreciated.
