Hello there -
I’m arriving in Taipei on June 15 and have yet to secure a job. I am extremely confused by Taiwan’s visa situation and wondered if you could help.
I am a UK citizen, so I understand I automatically get a 90 day landing visa on arrival, but I must first show proof (ie a plane ticket) that I plan to leave the country before the 90 days is up.
I have booked a cheap single flight ticket to Kotakinabalu with Air Asia for mid August to satisfy this criteria. If I find work within the 90 days, I presume that my employer will sponsor me for a work visa. I will cancel the ticket to Kotakinabalu, or else let it pass, or go for a weekend away. If I can;t find work, I’ll have to do the visa run to Kotakinabalu.
Is this correct?
Thanks for helping a naive laowai.
