What kind of visa do the students need to obtain?

Before entering Taiwan, students are responsible for applying for a proper visa from the Taiwanese Embassy in their residence country with letters of acceptance (Chinese version only) from NTU. Look up Embassies and Missions( ) closest to them.


Please note that if students fail to obtain visas issued by Taiwanese Embassies or are rejected, the exchange student identity will also be canceled.


If students are Mainland China Passport holders, they will have to apply for an Entry Permit (入臺證) through the assistance of NTU.

Are International students allowed to work?

Exchange students are not allowed to work in Taiwan because they do not fulfill the work permit requirements. Students who hold a job without a work permit can be fined TWD 30,000 to 150,000. However, it is acceptable for students to complete an unpaid internship or volunteer work.
