Chapter 4: Overseas Compatriots
An overseas compatriot may engage in professional or mid-level technical work in the State without requirement to obtain permission. However, in the case of one who concurrently holds the nationality of a foreign country, his/her permission to work will be handled in accordance with the relevant provisions of this Act as applicable to foreign professionals and foreign mid-level technicians.
Overseas compatriots are targets for active recruitment under this Act, hence may engage in professional work or mid-level technical work in the State without having to obtain permission. Also, in accordance with the provisions of Article 79 of the Employment Services Act, where overseas compatriots concurrently hold the nationality of a foreign country, their employment to work in Taiwan will be handled in accordance with the provisions applying to foreign nationals, as stipulated in the provison of this Article.
An overseas compatriot may enter the State with exemption from applying for an entry permit or may apply for an entry permit at the time of entry. Regulations on those to whom these apply, the approval conditions, and time limits on stay will be set by the Ministry of the Interior in consultation with the relevant authorities.
An overseas compatriot who engages in professional or mid-level technical work in the State under the provisions of the preceding Article may apply to the NIA for residency, and upon approval, will be issued with a residence certificate of Taiwan Area.
An overseas compatriot who receives approval to engage in mid-level technical work in the State, and who was originally approved to reside for the purpose of schooling, training, or engaging in work

issued with a new residence certificate of Taiwan Area, with the effective duration of his/her residency reviewed and set.
The residence certificate of Taiwan Area as referred to in the second paragraph will have an effective duration of up to three years, starting from the next day after entry to the State. If the holder requires to continue residence after the effective duration expires, he/she may, prior to its expiration, apply to the NIA for an extension of up to three years at a time.
- Article 5 Paragraph 2 of the Immigration Act prescribes that ROC nationals without household registration in Taiwan must apply for permission to enter Taiwan. But considering that, under Taiwan’s current visa exemption rules, citizens of countries to which Taiwan grants visa exemption may enter Taiwan without a visa and stay for up to 90 days, and that, among overseas compatriots living outside Taiwan, there are many with outstanding talents in all fields of expertise, and that they have a blood and emotional attachment to Taiwan, so they ought to be subject to relatively favorable rules. Therefore, Paragraph 1 relaxes the law to allow overseas compatriots to whom this Act applies to be granted exemption from applying for an entry permit or to apply for a permit upon arrival, and provides for regulations governing those to whom this applies, the approval conditions, and time limit of stay, to be set separately by the Ministry of the Interior in consultation with related authorities.
- Article 9 Paragraph 1 Subparagraph 11 and Article 3 of the Immigration Act prescribe that overseas compatriots who have been approved to engage in professional work in Taiwan may apply to the NIA for residency and the issuance of the residence certificate of Taiwan Area. But considering that those to whom this Act applies also include persons engaging in professional and mid-level technical work under exemption from obtaining permission, the law is accordingly relaxed to allow all such overseas compatriots to apply for residency.
- Paragraph 3 stipulates that when overseas compatriots approved to engage in mid-level technical work in Taiwan are students or basic-level workers, they must apply to the NIA to change their purpose of residence and to be issued with a new resident certificate.
- Paragraph 4 is prescribed with reference to Article 9 Paragraphs 3 to 5 of the Immigration Act.
