I also saw, from a comment there, that the 365 day requirement remains:
I’ll be going to Taiwan next month for a quick trip, and am wondering if I should apply for a TARC or save time and skip it- currently, I have the NWOHR passport with an entry/exit permit, am aged 40, and both of my parents have active household registration. I do plan on moving to Taiwan within the near future, so any clarity here would be great.
My daughter (age 2) also has an NWOHR passport, and I am wondering if she needs a TARC to stay in Taiwan as well. Our goal is to get household registration for the both of us.
According to @tando the TARC holders mentioned in the news article you linked are not referring to people like you who qualify for Taiwan ID after living here for a year. They are talking about a different kind of TARC holders (eg. from China).
I linked the same article about a month ago and asked you the same question, and that was the answer you gave me (paraphrasing).
Below is the part of the article in question, which seems to contradict the new laws.
Rules allowing overseas nationals to obtain household registration by being legally and continuously resident in Taiwan for one full year, or more than 270 days a year for at least two years, remain unchanged.
So… How long on average does a legislative reading (or whatever stage this is stuck in) takes to complete? Are things like this effective immediately, or is it “to be enacted January 2024” or something? The suspense of that upcoming legislation is driving me nuts!
AF384 is for NWOHRs over 20 years old who were born overseas, but whose parents have or had household registration in Taiwan. Usually used when the household registration has lapsed and/or parents are deceased
age limit was removed. minor whose parents are deceased can apply for tarc on this
My son was born in Taiwan when ROC mothers could not pass in citizenship to children. So he stayed on his ARC and left before he turned 20. Now of course in 2000 they made children born from 1980 to 1999 in Taiwan to foreign parent and ROC mother eligible for ROC passport and ID card but it was not automatic you had to formally apply for it.
So it seems this law probably does not include him. He has NWOHR passport with no HHR or ID card issued in Australia. TECO Sydney were but you were born in Taiwan to ROC parent why don’t you already have HHR and ID Card. Clueless … lol
if you were born in taiwan between 1980 and 2000 with a foreign father and a taiwanese mothet with hhr, you can already ditectly get your hhr, so don’t need to wait for the ammended act will become effective. they expanded it to all nationals who were born in taiwan under parents with hhr and left taiwan without registering hhr.
but, your son dont want to do conscription, so dont want hhr yet. no?
the ammended law is don’t need to be on tarc. if you want, you can be on tarc.
Well he did not do military service in Taiwan. He had some friends who got their Taiwan ID and passport and after finishing high school went to the airport to fly to their other country of nationality but were told, nup can’t leave until you do your military service. Opps. Back in 2010 your military service time was a year if I recall. I do believe you can inform me of that.
Thing is he applied for his Taiwan passport in Australia in 2011 so no HHR or ID card could be issued.
