I’ve been teaching/studying in Taiwan for the past 2+ years and have recently been offered a job in a sales and marketing role for a small Taiwanese firm. I really want to take it, great opportunity etc.
After reading many previous posts, I have yet to find a clear answer. Is there any way I can do this?
I have already found out it is unlikely the company could get me an ARC as they are small, the position is not on the list of allowed professions, and I would not be a vice-president etc
I figure I have the following options:
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Do a bi-monthly visa run. Costly, plus i don’t know how many times i could do this without being denied the visa. I could each time provide a letter stating the purpose (business) of entering Taiwan.
I have a friend who runs a foreign multi-national in China. Could I get a letter from him stating he needs me in Taiwan. Would this provide me with a visa? and for how long? I’m willing to do visa runs. The longer spaced out the better of course.
Well, basically I’m out of ideas. I really want this job, it would be a much needed change from teaching. So, if anyone out there has any ideas at all on how i can make this happen please let me know. I’m willing to do just about anything.
