OK, d’oh, I re-(re)-read this and figured out what you want to do. If you are going to be working after your current ARC expires, you still need to renew it or you will be staying and working illegally. MAKE SURE YOU EXTEND YOUR ARC OR LEAVE TAIWAN BEFORE YOUR CURRENT ARC EXPIRES. Who sorted all this out for you in the first instance? The white sticker is not a visa but a re-entry permit attached to your ARC.
If you want to come back briefly in the holidays, what will you be doing? If you intend to stay longer than 30 days then you should just apply for a regular visitor visa at your local TECRO back in the states.
[quote=“Ace”][quote=“llary”]What is your reason for needing an extension? What was the original purpose of the visa? What are you doing in Taiwan now? How many times have you entered Taiwan and for how long?
I’ve been working in Taiwan using work permit 51. Next fall I’m going back to the States for graduate school. If I come back to Taiwan during the holidays I won’t be able to since my visa expires in March. And I don’t want to enter Taiwan using a Taiwanese passport because I need to apply for departure everytime I leave Taiwan. Therefore I want to use my US passport to leave and enter Taiwan.
I remember in the past I could get a white colored multiple entry visa extended in Taiwan, but I don’t remember where to get it.[/quote]
