Relocate to Beautiful Taiwan
Our office is in the heart of Taipei, an extremely livable city for expats in East Asia. In fact, Taipei was recently named by Shanghaist as the best country for expats. The city itself is vibrant, modern, safe, and extraordinarily convenient, with a relatively low cost of living for the developed world. Transportation within the city is simple, and the high-speed rail line takes passengers the length of the island in just two hours! Beyond the cities lies the natural beauty of the island (referred to by Europeans as Formosa for its beauty) in the form of mountains, gorges, beaches, and hot springs. Intimidated by language barriers? You don’t need to fear—you’ll find you have no problem communicating in English because the level of English is much higher than in other parts of Asia. Living in Taiwan is also an opportunity to learn and practice Mandarin Chinese and stuff yourself full of some of the best food in Asia.
Ready to Move to Taipei?
All government paperwork to obtain an ARC (residence/work permit) is filed and paid for you.
You will rest easy knowing you have access to Taiwan’s National Health Insurance program, recently ranked world’s best.
Your first week of accommodation is on us! We pay for a hotel to get you acclimatized.
Struggling with Chinese? We will also help you get a bank account and phone number as well as assist in finding a cozy apartment in Taipei.
Still short on cash? A salary advance is negotiable to help with initial costs.
