After your application has been approved, you will receive an e-mail notifying you to collect your Gold Card. Please bring your original passport and relevant documents to your selected location for picking up your Gold Card.
If it is not convenient to pick it up in person, you can ask a friend or agent. In that case, you need to provide them with a power of attorney form, please refer to FAQ .
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.
There is no “general” application category. You must select a single ministry to assess your skills.
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.
Use your personal check list to make it easier for you to remember if you have completed all steps of the application process.
