Taiwan may open doors to economic immigrants, paper says

Taiwan is expected to open its doors to economic immigrants in a move to attract more foreign technical talent, Economic Daily News reported Monday, citing unidentified sources. The island’s cabinet is set to discuss the issue at a meeting on Friday, the report said. Authorities may decide that salary will no longer be the sole evaluation standard to judge whether foreign talent can reside and work in Taiwan, it said. At present, Taiwan only allows foreigners who have at least two-year work experience and earn at least NT$47,971 (US$1,583) per month to work on the island. Meanwhile, the government may also look at adjusting the threshold to attract more immigrants through investment, the report said.
