Lost my APRC, in Canada, I should be able to get it replaced when I return, right?

APRC, not as permanent as the name suggests. And you are still treated as a tourist regarding many Taiwanese businesses (Banks, Telecom’s, etc.)

Most recent example


Just clarifying so you actually don’t need the open work permit, piece of paper?

right, if you are on APRC your spouse is a ROC citizen.

True but some employers still insist on it. I got a work permit (small plastic card) just to shut them up and make it easier. Just a quick visit to your local.immigration office.
