My contract doesn’t start until July 1st, but the school I signed a contract with is trying to say that I’d have to start working on April 15 if they apply for my work permit on April 1st.
I have to apply ASAP because my current FBI check expires on the 7th and isn’t authenticated or else I’d apply for my marriage visa.
The lady in charge of applying is sounding like she just doesn’t want to apply for it, and keeps saying to just apply for my marriage visa. However, I can’t get an FBI check since they stopped processing them as they’re working from home.
What this lady is saying doesn’t make any sense. People get work permits before coming to Taiwan. I’d need a work permit to even apply for my resident visa.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but the process is this:
- Company applies for my work permit -> 2) receive work permit and apply for resident visa -> 3) receive resident visa and apply for ARC within 15 days of arriving (if not yet in Taiwan) or within 15 days of receiving the resident visa (if already in Taiwan).
Is there any reason I couldn’t get my work permit, resident visa, and ARC and then start on my contract date of July 1st?
This all seems a bit ludicrous -_-
