thanks guys for your infos
i forgot to mention, my gf is not holding an ARC. she is in Philippines, so we are on a LDR. She only visits me here as a tourist. So maybe my question is, can we get marry here in Taiwan even she’s entering as a tourist?
@rooftopclown i guess that’s what i am worrying about, when we came to the point that she have to give up her Filipino citizenship.
it seems like it would be easier if we get married here rather tan getting married in Philippines. Because of all the translation thing and authorization, it’s very expensive in PH.
Residency is different from being naturalized right? so does is it means if she didn’t want to renounce her Filipino citizenship she could stay here in Taiwan as resident instead? does resident got to get Taiwan passport?
No. You cannot marry her here in Taiwan while she’s on tourist visa. Tourist visa is just for the word itself, government transactions involving marrying a tourist might not allowed.
The easy way for you may be marry her in Philippines first since she is Filipina and apply her a residency in Taiwan. I have been on this situation. Ours was somehow different. (“You can read topics here about “getting married in taiwan”). It took us 8 months to be with each other but for you with dual citizenship, it may just take 3 months or so.
@tando ok it seems like, it is more complicated if both parties are foreigners in Taiwan.
but on the thread i shared, he married a Taiwanese which makes it a little easier though a lot of process also, but easier. which is almost the same with my situation cuz i am a Taiwanese.
so i guess what we could do is get married here in Taiwan. have it registered also in Philippines. Then my gf/wife has to return to Philippines to apply for JFRV then after that she could come back to Taiwan and we could start applying for her ARC.
