Taipei, May 7 (CNA) Seeking to sharpen the nation’s competitiveness by harnessing the talent of overseas Chinese students who study in Taiwan, the Ministry of the Interior decided Thursday to revise the rules to allow them to stay on the island for another six months to land jobs upon completion of their studies.
The ministry said, those students who don’t have local residency may apply for permission to stay as foreigners working in Taiwan if they can secure jobs within six months after graduation, said the ministry.
Those who fail to obtain employment during the additional six months will then be required to end their stay in Taiwan, according to the revised rules. [FULL STORY]
