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.

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. Special requirements apply to residents of Mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau.​​
