Once again, thanks for always answering my queries, Icon (are you stalking me? :P)! Skimmed through some of the posts above...does this mean I have to go to Taipei?! I live in Zhongli and received my APRC from the Taoyuan office.

Now that is a good question...Mmmm, my best guess is that Taoyuan should have its own Labor Affairs office, but HELP!!!

As to the stalking, wish I had the time!

I got my APRC in Taoyuan but was told I had to go to Taipei to get the OWP. Maybe it's changed from two years ago?

I successfully applied for mine through the mail a few years back. I think the details about how to do it are buried somewhere in this thread.

Follow the stampede of angry foreigners, but only from 2 to 5. :wink:

Any other times, follow the protests. Where they start throwing tomatoes, that's it. Don't forget to visit the gift shop. There are guided tours of the premises on Fridays, come and appreciate the Japanese legacy. :twisted:
