ALIEN RESIDENT CERTIFICATE (ARC) 

For international students, the Alien Resident Certificate (ARC) serves as their temporary ID card which can prove your resident status in Taiwan. It is a very important document and
we advise you to take good care of it and pay attention to its expiration date! 
 
Moreover, whether you have entered Taiwan with Resident Visa or obtained Resident Visa through visa change within Taiwan, please remember to apply for the Alien Resident Certificate
and Re-entry Permit at your local office of Ministry of Interior National Immigration Agency on the next day upon arrival or within 15 days of the issue of your resident visa.

Application Procedure 
              When applying for ARC, please prepare the required documents and go to the local service of  Ministry of Interior National Immigration Agency.
              The process can be done in person or by an  agent who comes along with the certificate of entrustment signed by the applicant. 
 
Other points for Attention 
              1. Resident Visa holders (or ones who obtained Resident Visa within ROC by visa change) are required to apply for the Alien Resident Certificate and Re-entry Permit 
                  at the local office of  the Ministry of Interior National Immigration Agency on the next day upon arrival or within       15 days of the issue of your resident visa. 
              2. If Alien Resident Certificate holders need to leave and re-enter ROC within the valid period of  their ARC, they should apply for re-entry permits while applying for ARC. 
              3. International students have to apply for ARC extension one month earlier  than the expired date. If the ARC expires during the summer vacation   
                  (from July to September), students are allowed to apply for extension  from the 1st of June. 
              4. For over-staying foreigners who did not apply for ARC extension, their  residence will be ceased by the authorized agency, and they may be  expelled from Taiwan 
              5. Applicants requesting ARC renewal due to the loss or damage of their ARC must pay NTD 500 for the renewal process.
