I lived in Taiwan for 7 years.† Always had an ARC.† Then a new school offered me a job but didn't have their license YET and said they would in about 3 - 6 months.† I was studying at the time and had a student visa.† The government came one day when I was teaching at said school and told me that I was in big trouble.† So instead of sticking around for big fine and imminent deportation, I left Taiwan and headed back to my own country.

Now I want to come back because my life was there.

I was never served any documents nor was I hassled or told anything at the airport when I was leaving the country.

Any suggestions?

Did you sign anything?

If so, do you have a copy?

You may apply for a visitors visa. If
there is something on your record they'll probably deny you one.

I had a problem the first time I was in
Taiwan and overstayed for just one day. The foreign affairs office at
the airport made a big deal out of it, and put a nasty stamp into my
passport. So I went to the visa office in my country and simply
talked to them.

Basically, You should find out if there
is some real peruse going on or not.

Did the school get a fine?

Did you get paid?

How many police officers were there?

Who send them?

That your ARC was for a student visa
and not for work is bad, so there is not much of an excuse you can

Anyhow, go to the authorities and see
what you can do.
