Bring Birds to Taiwan

My friend is bring his bird to Taiwan at the beginning of next year. He is planning on coming to TW to work as an English teacher. But when he 1st get here, he will be on a visitor-visa.

Question 1)
Does he need veterinarian paper for the applicaiotn for a bird? or Not? Does he need this paperwork for import permit as well?? The bird is exempt from the rabies vaccination dates that they require, as birds cannot get rabies.

Question 2)
We read somewhere that one needs a resident visa for an import permit for a pet. But he is not going to get a resident visa until a few weeks AFTER his arrival. Can he import a bird with only a visitor visa or is he screwed??

Question 3)
What kind of quarantine (roughly) should he expect?? Days,weeks, months??
