Before you arrived in Taiwan and have accept an position, we (school) will not apply for your work permit. Alao all schools in Taiwan do not provide pre-paid airfare.

Step 4 VISA
This is the Best way to enter Taiwan -- Visitor Visa. Holding a visitor visa, you can just come and get the work permit, resident visa and ARC after getting a job in Taiwan. We suggest teachers to simply apply for a 60-day extensible visitor visa, because it needs 3 weeks to get a work permit and resident visa.

If you get a 30-day visitor visa, you'll have to rush. If your first visit exceeds the period given, you'll still have to fly out. So 60 days is recommended.

we DO NOT recommend other visas!

Landing Visa (Visa-Exempt Entry)
Obtained at the airport. Only good for 14 or 30 days (according to your nationality), and an extension will not be granted. If you come into Taiwan with a landing visa, you will need to fly out again and get the 60 days equip-work visit visa before your work permit can be processed. The visa application fee is different in each representative office. The time it takes to process a visa also differs. In some cases, an extra service charge may be paid and your visa will be processed within the day.

Working Holiday Visa
This visa only works for AU & NZ citizens. It only allows you to work part time. Also you can only work for 3 months for each job, then change. That's only good for you to experience Taiwan and travel. If you would like to really settle down, this is not an option.

Before flying, please revisit the "Checklist" and make sure you got everything.Upon arrival in Taiwan, although we do not provide airport pick-up, we will give you clear instructions traveling to your destination city.

A lot of highway shuttle buses can take you directly from T.T.Y.(Taiwan Toayuan) Airport to Taichung or other cities.Renting a hotel would cost you about 400-600NTD(13-19USD)/day.

If you stay in Taichung, where we are based, we would love to meet you. Traveling to Taichung city is very easy and fast, about 2 hours, and most people here can speak basic English.

**If you are guaranteed with a job, then the interview or demo is NOT needed.
