Taiwan - Visas, Residency, Immigration & DocumentationPage: 2/2
If you are planning to work or study in Taiwan for a period exceeding 60 days, or wish to live in Taiwan on the basis of marriage to a Taiwan national, you are required to obtain a Resident Visa before travelling to Taiwan, although students can apply from within the country after entering on a Visitor Visa.
For those intending to work in Taiwan, it is necessary for their prospective employer to obtain a work permit on their behalf, and for this to be submitted with the Resident Visa application. Applicants are also required to submit their valid passport, 2 passport-sized photos, an application processing fee (details available from local embassy or representative office); and bank statements or other proof of sufficient funds to support themselves initially in Taiwan.
On arrival in Taiwan, foreign nationals with a Resident Visa must register as an Alien with the Foreign Affairs Police, and are required to carry their Alien Registration Card at all times.
Foreign nationals who have lived continuously in Taiwan for a period of at least 183 days in the previous 7 years prior to application, or during ten of the past twenty years, are eligible to apply for permanent residency, but must still apply for a work permit if they wish to work in Taiwan.
Working Holiday Visas
Working holiday visas are available to enable foreign nationals aged between 18 and 30 to work in Taiwan for up to 180 days (extendable once), or to take a Chinese language course.
