Ministry of Interior to extend visa duration for overseas graduates

The ministry indicated that the visa amendment is implemented to coordinate with governmental policy. The visa extension constitutes to the “Regulations Governing Visiting, Residency, and Permanent Residency of Aliens" article, which states that a 6-months visa duration can be accorded to graduating overseas students. If the applicant fails to find employment within 6 months and doesn’t hold other qualifications for applying a visa extension, they will be asked to leave.

The Ministry of Interior has passed the amended draft of “Taiwan area non-neutralized citizen residency application “and will be announced in the near future.
