Working in Taiwan

The visa needed, if any, to travel to Taiwan is determined by the employee’s home country, duration of stay, and the type of work being done in the country.

Foreign nationals who hold an Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Business Travel Card (ABTC) with a “TWN” code and foreign nationals from certain countries, including EU member states, Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom, are allowed to enter Hong Kong for business or personal travel for up to 90 days, depending on home country.

For short-term business trips of 60 or 90 days, employees can apply for and secure a Visitor Visa. For longer-term business trips or employment, typically a work permit, residence visa, and Alien Resident Certificate (ARC) are required. It’s important to note that both an employer and employee will be responsible for supplying documentation for a work permit.

Processing times can very based on the time of year and type of visa, so make sure your company factors processing time into the timeline for sending a foreign national to work in Taiwan. There are several types of work passes and permits for Taiwan, but we’ve listed some common ones below.
