Personnel from 12 Taiwanese government agencies got on board the National
Immigration Agency’s (NIA) mobile unit Thursday, when it traveled to the southernmost county of Pingtung in an expansion of service to new immigrants in remote areas.
NIA deputy director Ho Jung-chun, who was onsite to check on the efficiency of the service, said the NIA mobile unit will visit Pingtung every three months to process new immigrants’ applications for resident visa extensions and to provide consultations.
