Hi, I have had the same ARC for a couple years from a bushiban in Taipei. I stopped working for them four months ago, and my work permit was cancelled. Immediately after that, I left Taiwan for a three-month holiday. When I came back to Taiwan, I didn’t have a visitor visa, and I was allowed in on the basis of my re-entry permit and ARC, so this obviously means that my ARC is still valid.
If my ARC is still valid, then when I apply for a new work permit, the authorities won’t give me any trouble about having to make a visa run, will they? since they allowed me back in on my current ARC?
