Have you heard of the Act for the Recruitment and Employment of Foreign Professionals newly passed by the Taiwanese government? Beginning in February 2018, foreign friends who are interested in working and living in Taiwan will enjoy certain benefits regarding visas, residence, health insurance and retirement pensions. We warmly welcome you to develop your career in Taiwan. 

  • As of February 2018, foreign friends who are interested in working and living in Taiwan will first be granted a 6-month visa for seeking employment in Taiwan.
  • Spouses and minor children of foreign friends hired by institutions in Taiwan will receive Taiwan's national health insurance program.
  • Foreign friends who obtain permanent resident permits will be entitled to participate in Taiwan's labor retirement pension system.
  • Foreign friends, under certain conditions, will be granted a special procedure in which they may apply for golden employment cards, which combine a returning visa, resident permit and working permit for 5 years.
  • Foreign friends, under certain conditions, will only need to pay half of the usual income tax in the first three years working in Taiwan, as long as their annual income is above 3 million NT dollars.
