I just wanted to ask about your experience on applying APRC. For the last 4 years my company is helping me extend my ARC yearly. I was just wondering if they will still apply APRC on the 5th year for me or I have to apply it on my own? How was your experience about it, did your employer still help you to apply APRC?
I guess the confusion here comes after your response to his assumption. He said on his fifth year as in his fifth anniversary, so after having hold ARC for five years. I guess that “on his fifth year” could be understood in both ways, but what can I know anyway, my native language is Ayapaneco,
Why would an employer do this? You should apply on your own, as it gives you residence and (with one extra small step) open work rights in Taiwan. If you imagine being in Taiwan beyond five years—and if you’re eligible!—it’s totally worth getting an APRC.
I have an APRC question but don’t think it deserves a new thread , I’m not trying to thread jack here but one question.
Is being currently employed a requirement for the APRC, such as , if I’m employed now and quit, and get that 6 month looking for employment ARC, can I still apply for APRC or do you need to be employed and must submit the work permit
You apply for/sponsor your own. My company hired someone to handle the paperwork/application and paid the fee even though they wouldn’t be the sponsor any longer. It saved them from having to renew the arc every couple of years.
