 The Act for the Recruitment and Employment of Foreign Professionals was formally implemented on 8 February 2018. The act relaxes previous regulations pertaining to visas, work permits, taxes, insurance, pensions and residency for foreign professionals and their families. The act aims to build a friendly environment that attracts foreign professionals to work and live in Taiwan and thereby help to upgrade Taiwan’s competitiveness. This event has been arranged by the ECCT’s Human Resources committee to explain the main provisions of the act. In addition to describing the main benefits, the speaker will also outline the main responsibilities of various government agencies and the requirements and implications for individuals planning to or already living in Taiwan and businesses operating or planning to set up operations in Taiwan.
 
Under the new act, foreign professionals are able to apply for an “Employment Gold Card”, which makes it more convenient for them to change jobs. In addition, foreign freelance artists are allowed to obtain work permits without applying for them through employers while cram schools in Taiwan are allowed to hire foreign teachers with expertise or professional teaching skills. In addition, foreign professionals looking for jobs in Taiwan are eligible to apply for employment-seeking visas.
 
The act also eases restrictions on the spouses, parents and children of foreign professionals. A provision in the act already implemented by supporting regulations is an amendment to the National Health Insurance Act to allow newborn babies of legal foreign residents in Taiwan to be covered by the national health insurance plan upon birth. The revised health insurance rule overturned the previous stipulation that foreign parents with resident status in Taiwan could only obtain health insurance for babies six months after they were born. The act also resolves issues raised by the ECCT’s Better Living and Human Resources committees. In particular, the minimum duration of stay of 183 days per year for maintaining permanent residency has been abolished and foreign permanent residents are now eligible for the New Pension Scheme under the Labour Pension Act.
