Ok well if I don’t get an ARC …how much would health insurance cost me? Does anyone have an idea? Do you know of any private enterprises I can go to?
Also, if this job is not a white-collar job…then can I get multiple working permits? So my main company would be this one, and then I could teach part time on another working permit? I was under the impression that you could only hold one working permit for one job and taht was it. like you can’t work for any other companies in Taiwan. If I am mistaken please clear this up. Thanks for the help[/quote]
You have to get an ARC, otherwise you are in the country illegally. You are welcome to get private health insurance, but you still have to pay (it is taken out of your paycheck) into the national health insurance system, whether you use it or not. If you are a caregiver, you can most likely forget about your employer giving you their blessing to get a part-time teaching job.
Don’t you think you owe it to your employer who is SPONSORING your work permit to be a bit loyal to them, at least at first, before you start freaking out about being able to work at a part-time job?[/quote]
I just learned about the ARC thing. Well the reason why I would get a part time job is because this job field I am getting into (entertainment) is not stable. So I would need a part time teaching job in the mean time. My employer knows about the part time job…so its no big deal.
I just learned that I need the ARC to be here legally. I am told my current employer can transfer the ARC to the next employer. Is this true? What is the possibility of transferring to another PART TIME teaching job? I am told you need to be considered full time with at least 14 hours a week of work…is this true? I want my entertainment company to get the ARC for me, but they do not do such things. If I need an ARC anyway, that solves my health insurance questions…But now I’m confused on who I can work with and who will sponsor the ARC for me. (I just use the word sponsor as it is easy to relate to)
