Taipei, Taiwan, January 26, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- WiT (Work in Taiwan: http://workintaiwan.co) launched its online service to help foreign professionals looking to apply for the Employment Gold Card in Taiwan. The Employment Gold Card originates from Taiwan’s Legislative Yuan passing the new Act Governing Recruitment and Employment of Foreign Professionals in October 2017 and is in the works to go in effect around Chinese New Year. It will allow foreign professionals to work in Taiwan legally without a sponsoring employer, along with many other benefits and flexibilities.
Jason Warren (WiT’s Founder) is an American who has lived in Taiwan for more than 7 years, and has been in the business of hiring foreign professionals from Europe and Asia for his company R+W (https://www.roamandwander.com). He is keenly aware of how challenging the process can be for non-Chinese speaking professionals. With such special work visa provision, Jason believes that many highly-skilled foreign professionals will be attracted to work in Taiwan and wants WiT to play a key role making the process as easy as possible for all eligible applicants, all in English.
Sohee Chu (WiT’s Co-Founder) witnessed a world-class tennis coach struggling to find a way to set up a coaching business in Taiwan and saw how often it was a source of vulnerability and manipulation. When Taiwan’s Executive Yuan was working to pass the bill, she could see hope for the coach and many others. “I know what it feels like to be indebted to a sponsoring employer as I once experienced it working in the US with an H-1B visa. This new visa program in Taiwan, is going to make it easier for talented professionals to do what they do best without worrying about legal issues.”
WiT will be taking early pre-qualification registration, free of charge. All registered applicants will be receiving communication and news about the Employment Gold Card. Once the details from the Taiwan government is released about application fees and processes, WiT will be servicing the application process at a nominal fee.
WiT team openly admits, “No, we are not lawyers. Instead, we are professionals with countless experience helping other peers receive their work visas in Taiwan, with 100% approval rates. Working with a lawyer is not a requirement from Taiwan's immigration agency but if you can afford a lawyer, we won't get on your way.”
WiT (Work in Taiwan: https://workintaiwan.co) provides pre-qualification assessment and simplified Employment Gold Card application services for foreign professionals who are interested in working in Taiwan. All application instructions are in English and can be submitted online.
