I’m Canadian and my wife is Taiwanese. Currently I have an ARC from my school, but I’d rather have a JFRV because of the freedom to find other work that it would afford me.
My question is, do we need to be married in Canada for me to get a JFRV in Taiwan? We haven’t been to Canada together in the last few years. It’s hard to do the trip with two kids. We’ve been married in Taiwan for five years.
I heard somewhere that to get a JFRV you must be married in TW and also in the foreign spouse’s home country, but this doesn’t seem very practical. What if the foreign spouse’s home country is really, really far and the couple has limited financial means?
