Taiwan: Laws Relaxed For Foreign Professionals

Latest news on the laws being relaxed for foreign professionals

A new bill was drafted on 20 April 2017 to encourage foreign talent into Taiwan, the bill is to relax restrictions and improve foreign professionals in Taiwan. The bill would apply to all foreign skilled workers, including those from Hong Kong and Macau but not mainland China.

Foreign skilled workers earning more than NT$2 million in annual pay would be eligible for a 50-percent income tax cut for the first three years and foreign income will be exempt from basic income tax in Taiwan.

The family visitor visa for immediate family members would be extended from six months to a year per application.

Permanent residents and white-collar workers would also be given the choice of taking their pension in monthly payments instead of in a lump-sum pay out.
