Switching from APRC to TARC after naturalization

What happens if you don’t switch from an APRC to TARC after naturalization? NIA says there’s no deadline for the switch…

I was asking this question a while ago but didn’t get an answer. I guess there are two questions:

  1. Is there a deadline for getting a TARC? I don’t think so, many NWHORs live abroad and don’t have TARCs.

  2. Can a dual Taiwan National enter and live in Taiwan using their foreign passport + ARC or APRC? I feel like the answer is yes for ARC but no for APRC, but I’m not sure where I read that

I seem to remember reading Taiwan nationals cannot hold APRCs

NWOHRs are required to get an Exit & Entry Permit for Taiwan and to apply for a TARC once they enter Taiwan.

You can’t apply for an A(P)RC once you’ve naturalized but what if you already have an A(P)RC? NIA says my APRC will get cancled only if/when I apply for a TARC.

But does the clock start on your 1 year to HHR if you don’t switch to the TARC?
