I just want to ask if Taiwan allows same sex marriage for foreigners? My partner and I really need some relavant ideas upon this matter. My fiancée is a PR in Canada and we want to get married in Taiwan as I cannot go to Canada.
A respective referendum for AND against the legalization of same sex marriage through the Civil Code will be held on November 24th, coinciding with a bunch of local elections. Please make sure you and your friends go out and vote if you can.
NO to “你是否同意以民法婚姻規定以外之其他形式來保障同性別二人經營永久共同生活的權益？” This is proposed by the Fundamental Christian group that insists marriage is only between a man and a woman.
Yes to “您是否同意，以民法婚姻章保障同性別二人建立婚姻關係？” This is what we’re trying to accomplish. Again this is not about what you think of the marriage institution; this is about whether same sex couples have the same rights to get married if they choose to, just like every straight couple does.
The questions started with 你 is from the Fundamental Christians.
The questions started with 您 is from Marriage equality groups.
Ideally since the Taiwan Supreme Court has already ruled that not allowing same-sex marriage is unconstitutional, the legislature should just go ahead and amended the current law. By sitting on this issue the legislators are playing political games and turning the whole thing into a waste of tax money.

The law is not yet effective in tsiwan, as @Brianjones answered.
The same sex marriage law passed the first reading of legislature yuan in 2016, and judicial yuan ruled the law should become effective by May in 2019. Though the referendam in 2018 opposed the same sex marriage law, the Government announced that the Constitutional Court ruling will still go into effect in May 2019, regardless of the referendum results.
Exective yuan published a draft for the law regarding to the same sex msrriage on Feb. 20 2019, and the bill is scheduled to be approved by the Cabinet on 21 February, then sent to the Legislature Yuan for passage, before taking effect by 24 May.
