I’m coming to Taiwan as a self-employed investor this September and now have my multi entry visitor visa. I want to make absolutely double asbestos-underpants sure that nothing stupid goes wrong at this stage, so I have two questions about my visa:
the visa is valid until 12th December. I can renew this twice for 60 days each time, correct? As it’s a multi entry visa, I take it I can fly to Hong Kong at the beginning of December, re-enter Taiwan before the 12th and reset the whole process? So effectively, I will have until May/June 2006 to sort out my FIA and resident visa (extension to December, then re-entry for 60 days + 2 extensions)?
will immigration at CKS airport need to see a return ticket of some description, even though I’m clearly arriving in Taiwan with the intention to invest and apply for a resident visa? I have an excellent relationship with MOEA both in the UK and Taiwan so the TRO and MOEA branch office have kindly provided a letter confirming my reason for entering Taiwan. Will this be enough? I bought a one-way ticket to Taipei because obviously I can’t pinpoint exactly when I will get my resident visa. I have some people to see in Tokyo so as soon as the FIA etc. is done I can leave and re-enter via Japan.
