It’s a little hard to obtain an ARC (via work permit) for being a bartender. How do you plan to swing that one?

I have been doing exactly what you have been talking about, the basics are you need to find a bank in the US that will accept international money transfers and then it is simply having your bank in Taiwan to transfer how ever much you want monthly into your account in the US. It takes some time and a lot of work to get things working properly but it is do able. I have 2 accounts here on is with ChinaTrust bank and the other is Bank of Taiwan, China Trust charges a 800NT (24 usd) fee I can’t remember what BOT charges. My old US bank charged me 5 dollars for every deposit and 10 to transfer money back.

>edit: You might be able to find other ways by searching around on a very helpful forum for westerners,… here is a direct link to information about this topic

Question by teachme1672: I’m moving to Hsinchu TAIWAN to teach English in October.?
Is there anyone that knows something about Hsinchu, Taiwan? I am an American and I don’t know much about the city. I love the beach and body surfing. Any nice beaches close by? Whats the water temperature? Do they get typhoons there? Any nice entertainment spots or clubs? How will the people greet an American? I respect all cultures and will make a big effort to fit in. Will many people like shop owners etc speak English? Thank for your help.
