Before covid took over everything I was considering resigning the job I have done for over a year. The atmosphere is fairly toxic though I have been managing. Of course, now the plan is to stay at least until August and see what happens in the world. If I was to resign could I get the usual 6 month extension without a problem? As the situation has worsened between myself and a couple of local individuals (exacerbated I think by covid tensions…‘you are so lucky to be here’ etc…, it has occurred to me that it is always possible a sudden argument might lead to an immediate request for me to leave… If a job was cancelled in a day where would I stand visa wise?
I am fairly new to Taiwan and do not know the answer to such questions. In this latter, bleak scenario what would be my options? Would I still be given some notice and the ARC be valid for long enough to extend.? Like I say, I certainly want to stick around until at least August . Of course I hope things will not turn out as bleakly as my worst case scenario. But in the time of covid it is best to be prepared.
I would appreciate answers from long timers in Taiwan with actual knowledge.
