There is a new office which handles ARCs for foreign teachers in Taiwan, the National Immigration Agency. Addresses for each office are listed at the bottom of the page.

Previously, our ARCs were issued by the Foreign Affairs Police.

目前在台的外籍人士所持有的外僑居留證改 由內政部入出國及移民署所承辦,而非以往的警察局外事課/科。

The new agency opened on January 2nd, 2007. The agency itself was inaugurated and all 25 offices were opened on that same day.

The offices are open 5 days a week 8am-5:30pm and do NOT close for lunch.

此新的承辦單位於2007年1月2日正式上路,且於全台灣共設有25個承辦地點。
辦公時間為週一至週五早上八點至下午五點半且中午仍照常辦公

If you already have an ARC, any changes and amendments to it – if you added a second school, for instance – will now be handled by the National Immigration Agency. If you are getting an ARC these are the offices you will go to.

如果您已經持有外僑居留證,而且需要做任 何的修正、更新,例如:新增第二個工作,則必須前往內政部入出國及移民署辦理。同樣地,尚未有外僑居留證並需申請者,仍需前往上述地點辦理。

Beyond ARCs, as far as teachers & direct impact go, there is household registration. The NIA points out that when teachers move, we should go to the NIA office in our new neighborhood and update our address within 15 days. (Citizens also have to do this when they move - at the office of Household Registration Office within 4 months.)

除了外僑居留證對於外籍教師有直接影響外,還有戶政登記。內政部入出國及移民署表示當外籍教師搬遷時,需在15天內前往其所在地之承辦地點更新地址。(中華民國公民若有任何搬遷,同樣也需要到戶政事務所更新資料,但期限則為四個月內。)

The staff for the NIA numbers some 2,300. Many employees from the Foreign Affairs Ministry and the Foreign Affairs Police were transferred into the NIA.

內政部入出國及移民署共有2,300位員工,而多數的人原本是在外交部領事事務局與警察局外事課/科任職。

The agency itself falls under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of the Interior.

入出國及移民署之所屬單位為內政部。

Officials assert that the impetus for creating the agency arose from the government's need to provide a single, streamlined resources for Taiwan's growing immigrant population. Latest government figures show that twenty percent of all marriages in Taiwan involve foreign spouses, with 12% of all births occurring to such couples. While such demographic shifts may or may not be affecting you directly, these changes have caught us in their undertow nonetheless, and we find ourselves at the office of National Immigration Affairs when it comes to all things ARC.

政府單位表示之所以成立入出國及移民署是為了服務台灣逐漸成長的移民人口。根據統計,外籍配偶的人口約佔20%,而這些外籍配偶之新生兒則佔了12%。雖然這些改變並不會直接影響到外籍教師,但內政部入出國及移民署將是有任何外僑居留證需要變更的外籍教師需要前往辦理的地方。

In general terms, an ARC is the final step in the process of getting hired to teach English in Taiwan. In most cases those steps are:

一般情況下,外僑居留證通常是最後一個申請許可在台從事英語教學工作的程序,申請許可之程序如下:
