New overseas hiring law has become effective in Taiwan with the Employment and Recruitment of Overseas Professionals Governing Act from February 2018.

As per the new overseas hiring law in Taiwan, applicants must demonstrate that they possess work experience. This must be for the average last 6 months with minimum 47, 971 TWD. They can alternatively have been graduated from one of the Top 500 global universities.
Applicants for Visas for Seeking Employment must also show that they possess adequate funds which are around 3, 400 USD. A plan for job seeking, good conduct certificate, and health insurance are also required, as quoted by the Guardian.
