I will be moving to Taiwan in 1 month, as a trailing spouse (my wife is doing an expat assignment). My company is interested in having me work remotely from Taiwan while I am there, and I'm trying to understand how to go about the work permit for my specific situation. It's a bit different, as I'll be living there either way, and I'm not taking a Taiwan-based job. Seems like it should be a no-brainer for Taiwan... I'm living there anyways, and this way I pay taxes without taking a local job. But I'm at a loss of how to proceed. Anybody on here have knowledge/expertise that would be helpful here?
Have a look at our guide to work permits for Taiwan for an overview of the different regulations which could apply to you. You would probably also benefit from contacting your local Taiwanese embassy directly, as they're likely to have the most up to date information. The website for Taiwan's Ministry of Labor's Workforce Development Agency (https://www.wda.gov.tw/en/Default.aspx) could be useful as well.
Where will you be moving from? Are you planning to eventually apply for permanent residency in Taiwan?
