Welcome to Our Network of Expats in Taiwan!

Wènhòu, and welcome to our expat community in Taiwan. As the leading global platform for expatriates all over the world, InterNations is here to help you to get to grips with moving to a foreign country. Many expats in Taiwan have made use of our website to guide them through the process of relocating to Taiwan, and adapting once there. We're a community-driven site, so please add your own experiences to our forums. By joining InterNations, you can find answers to key questions, such as where to find the best accommodation in Taipei, finding a good international school, and how to claim national health insurance. We hope you will consider InterNations your door to Taiwan's international community, helping you to reach out to fellow travelers living in the area, and also to develop a richer understanding of the Taiwanese way of life. A thriving and hospitable modern state, Taiwan has much to recommend it to the adventurous expat, from the stunning views of Yangmingshan National Park and Jade Mountain to the world-famous Taiwan Lantern Festival.

With InterNations, you never stand alone. Whether you are moving to another country or going on a business trip somewhere — our communities around the world are there to make you feel at home wherever you are. Feel free to check out our vibrant InterNations Communities in countries like Saudi Arabia or Spain.

Embark on Your Life as an Expat in Taiwan

A mountainous island off the coast of China, Taiwan combines spectacular natural views with some of the most modern and densely populated cities in the world. This combination of the old world and the new, combined with a thriving business culture and tourist industry, attracts travelers and full-time expats alike. Key industries in Taiwan include electronics, chemicals, food processing, vehicles, and pharmaceuticals. The business culture in Taiwan embraces many Western ideals, but is also notable for a strongly Confucian influence and a great respect for hierarchy. The overall picture of Taiwan is one of a highly business-driven and motivated industry, with some surprisingly old-world values and a high value placed on respect and community.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in China or Qatar, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.
