Two Indonesians who have never worked in Taiwan were issued work visas in a trial of relaxed direct hiring rules, the Taipei Economic and Trade Office, Jakarta said on Thursday.
The two Indonesian nationals are to work in the manufacturing sector in Taiwan, and another seven will follow, officials said.
Although direct hiring has been in place for several years, it previously only applied to Indonesians hired in Taiwan.
The two migrant workers are to work for the same Taiwanese employer, who will shoulder the cost of their passports, visas, plane tickets, training and other fees, the office said. [FULL STORY]
