EZ Permit helps an Expatriate couple married in a third country to obtain the necessary documents related to their marriage that were recognized by the Taiwan government
TYPE: Dependent ARC／Authentication／Dual Nationality
A person holding the dual nationality of Malaysia and Australia was faced with the problem of obtaining her husband’s ARC as a dependent in Taiwan. The problem was rather complicated as her husband also had two Passports, Australian and Hong Kong. They were married in Malaysia which further complicated the problem, and had both entered Taiwan on their Australian Passports. Taiwan Immigration department required that for her husband to be classified as a dependent that their marriage must be authenticated by the Australian authorities.
This posed a major problem for the couple, however EZ Permit provided them the assistance and help that they needed. This included explaining about the process of dealing with this issue, suggesting the preparation of all required notarized and authenticated documents, and giving them guidance on how to respond and explain their situation when presenting their case to the appropriate Taiwan authority. Their applications were successful and finally they received their ARCs without any further problems.

A gentleman from Germany who we will refer to as Mr. O sees the EZ advertisement on Linkedin and subsequently at a forum on Chinese and Western affairs in Taipei he manages to find an EZ Consultant who is attending the same event.
They exchange business cards and Mr O explains his present situation in that he has just graduated from one of the top universities in Taiwan where he gained his MBA degree. He had already attended several interviews for various jobs but he is keenly interested in aspects related to the environment, especially in the field of green energy and so prefers to look for opportunities related to this.
The EZ consultant and Mr. O discuss his individual case and how best to pursue his career and ideas in this field, despite the limited number of job opportunities available in Taiwan. The EZ Consultant offered to provide Mr. O with information on the current vacancies in Taiwan’s green energy industry but warned him not to be too disappointed otherwise he may loose his interest and willingness to work in Taiwan.
Finally on reading the report Mr. O decided to go back to Germany to try to find suitable work. After his departure the EZ consultant maintained contact with him and soon after his return to Germany he was offered a position as a German consultant to work in China. Although the EZ consultant could not provide Mr. O with assistance in finding suitable employment in Taiwan, but their relationship provided a good platform for positive interaction. This gives them the opportunity to discuss the possibility of cooperation between the different industries in different countries in working creatively in an environmentally friendly way.
A gentleman from France who we will call Mr. M was in Taiwan attending a conference on Chinese and Western Cultural Exchanges when he came into contact with a member of our EZ staff. They exchanged business cards and during their conversation Mr. M expressed his great disappointment in an incident that he had recently experienced. He had been offered a job by a Taiwan company which he was eager to accept but after some time the offer was withdrawn due to the company offering him the job not being able to apply correctly for his work permit.
Due to his current Visa expiring shortly and his lack of funds he was going to have to return to France and find a job there but he was still keen on working in Taiwan one day. In an effort to help him the EZ staff member offered to keep in touch with him via e-mail and let him know of any possible job opportunities that came up. He was assured that if EZ handled his case in the future that his application for a work permit and ARC card would be handled professionally and correctly.
An American gentleman who we will refer to as Mr. S had recently graduated from University and found employment in Taiwan. Mr S had been successful without any problems in applying for his work permit and ARC cards for himself and his family. However the company that Mr. S would be working for was located in an area that he and his family were totally unfamiliar with.
As he and his family spoke only in English, EZ Permit provided him with a Realty contact that could speak English who would help him to find suitable accommodation closer to where he worked. They visited quite a number of different places before one was found that satisfied Mr. S’s requirements. Then came the task of assisting Mr. S to become familiar with all of the details involved in signing the contract and lease agreement with the property owner. Finally everything was settled and Mr. S and his family were happy to settle into their new home.
