Foreigners coming to Taiwan for training and nationals without
household registration can apply to extend stay in Taiwan to one year in the future under amendments regarding their stay in Taiwan taking effect in the near future, the Ministry of the Interior said on Thursday.
To attract overseas Chinese students and foreign students to stay in Taiwan after they graduate, the MOI said it had passed amendments to regulations governing the stay and residence of nationals without household registration and foreigners, the ministry said.
The amendments will relax the exit of foreigners and nationals without household registration in Taiwan for work or study, extending their time to exit from six months to one year, the MOI said, adding that the amendments also allow foreigners entering Taiwan to receive vocational training and nationals without household registration to apply for extension of stay under the purpose of seeking employment.
