Bring your Admission Letter and other required documents to your local Taiwanese representative office and apply for a Visa. If you plan to stay in Taiwan for more than six months, apply for a Resident Visa, which will allow you to apply for your Alien Resident Certificate (ARC) immediately after arriving in Taiwan. If you are going to stay in Taiwan for less than 6 months, apply for a Visitor Visa. But students entering on Visitor Visas will need to go through additional steps if they want to apply for an ARC. First, you need to receive your student ID after enrollment, then apply for a Resident Visa, followed by the Alien Resident Certificate. This process can entail additional administrative fees of about NTD3000.
