I am changing jobs from a post under the Ministry of Economic Affairs to a post under the Ministry of Education. My employer is a new university, so I want to know the visa application process to make sure the personnel office is on its toes. Is this correct…1. The university applies for a work permit (teaching certificate) from the Department of Education. 2. The university takes the work permit (teaching certificate) to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to obtain the visa. 3. The university or I take the visa to the Foreign Affairs Police to obtain the ARC.
Also, regarding the medical exam, how do I do that? The university has said nothing to me about it. Can I just go myself to any hospital and get an exam and give the results to my university, who submits that paper to MOFA along with the rest of my paperwork? Is there a special ‘visa medical form’ I can obtain at any hospital? (My new post is in Taichung County).
