Latest FAQ about the application process

Do I qualify?

In order to qualify for an Employment Gold Card, your skills must be related to one of eight fields: Science and Technology, Economics, Education, Culture and Art, Sport, Finance, Law, or Architecture. You must select which ministry is most relevant, and in most cases, also select a specific qualification in that particular area for your application.

Feel free to use our Gold Card Qualification Check to check your qualification.

Is there a “general” application criteria or must I select a specific field?

There is no “general” application category. You must select a single ministry to assess your skills.

Do I need to have a high salary to apply for a Gold Card?

You do not need to have a high salary. Some fields have a criteria where applicants with a salary greater than NT$160,000 qualify, however, this is only one criteria. To date, other than the dedicated salary criteria, no other criteria has financial requirements.
