Hi. So I “parachuted” on Taiwan from Portugal, about a month ago, on a Covid one entry visitor visa that I got for personal reasons.
I’m also finishing a masters and I needed a place/project to do a thesis so I on a “why not” moment, I got a position at an university in Taipei, working in a lab, receiving a student stipend.
But they are saying it’s impossible to get a student visa now, and they are saying it’s unlikely to get a work visa. They are suggesting me to just stay the 90 days my visa allows, and extend it, hopefully by the end of the extension, things will change and I can get the ARC thing.
My problem is… even during quarantine, I would like to leave and come back, you know, to get some stuff. I am planning to stay here for a year after all.
What do you suggest?
