Working and living in Taiwan – Valuable Information from A to Z

Moving to and living in Taiwan requires a wealth of up-to-date, trustworthy information on various aspects of Taiwanese expat life. Living abroad in Taiwan raises a lot of questions such as: ʺHow do I find the best relocation services for moving to Taiwan?ʺ, ʺShould I be vaccinated against Japanese encephalitis before coming to Taipeh?ʺ, ʺWhich international school in Taipeh should our kids attend?ʺ or, ʺHow do I obtain a work permit for my spouse at the Taiwanese municipality in Hsinchu?ʺ

Collecting all that information on working and living in Taiwan is quite laborious and time-consuming. Our InterNations Expat Guide for Taiwan aims to help you and provides you with reliable info on those topics that matter to expats living in Taiwan. The Guide includes information on many different areas ranging from culture and sights, to housing & household or embassies and consulates, up to international schools. Typical questions related to expat life abroad, such as ʺIs Taiwan a safe and friendly country for Western LGBT expats?ʺ, will no longer remain unanswered.
