Taiwan Immigration Services

​• The business immigration system in Taiwan includes categories for business visitors, specialized or technical workers, executives and blue-collar workers. Foreign nationals are eligible for permanent residence after five years of continuous legal residence in Taiwan. Special requirements apply to residents of Mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau.
 
• Business visitors use the Visitor Visa, generally valid for business visits of 14, 30, 60, or 90 days.
 
• Foreign nationals require a valid work permit to work in Taiwan. Assignments of six months or more require a work permit, a visitor visa conversion, a Resident Visa, and an Alien Resident Certificate. Assignments under six months require a work permit and a visa for business or employment purposes. Foreign professionals applying for a Taiwan work permit must demonstrate they meet the required standards for salary, education and training.​
