I read in TT online that the Min. of Interior was going to interview everyone (?) in Taiwan married to a foreigner.
My Taiwanese wife got a call this morning asking her to show up for an interview at the local whatever-it-is. She was given the impression that she had to attend. They say they just need some basic facts like visa number, “hu4 ko3” info stuff like that. She made some calls and it seems genuine, but I wonder if it is mandatory.
I imagine they may also ask about any problems that the couples have encountered with regard to living in Taiwan, laws etc.
What would be a good wish list for foreigners and their spouses in Taiwan?
Many of these have already been discussed in the forums. Can you add to this list?
- allow foreigners to get a 6-year driving license which is not linked to visa dates.
- ease permanent residency rules.
- do away with guarantors for phone lines etc.
- clarify the open work permit rules. I’m a freelance editor, but am still unsure as to whether I need an OWP. Should we fess up or keep schtum?
Well that’s all I can think of off the top of my head. I am sure I will think of loads more as soon as I hit submit. By the way, I do not have to go to the interview - just the wife.
Any additions to the wish list, or comments about the whole interview process?
