Good News for Taiwan-bound Filipino overseas workers!

The recent restrictions imposed by the Taiwan government on visa applications of Filipinos to Taiwan has been lifted today. Work permits and visa processing will follow the usual procedures prior to February 7, 2011.

Among the restrictions were additional documentary requirement (Social Security System card) and lengthier screening process.

The restriction stemmed from the Philippine's move to deport 14 Taiwanese to China last Ferbruary 2. Angered, the Taiwan government imposed those restrictions.

In a letter to special emissary Mar Roxas III dated March 15, 2011, Taiwan Minister of Foreign Affairs, Timothy Chin-tien Yang said,

"To express our good faith in response to your visits and the most recent measures taken by your government, we are lifting the restrictions on visa applications for all Filipino workers, effective immediately, and will resume the method used to process their work permits prior to February 7, 2011."


Former Senator Mar Roxas III was sent to Taiwan in February 21 & March 14 to resolve the issue. The change of commissioner in the Philippine Bureau of Immigration was viewed by Taiwan as a form of apology. One, it demanded from the Philippine government when the row started.

This breath of good news for Taiwan-bound Filipino overseas workers would surely motivate them more to perform their jobs well in Taiwan.

As of this writing, approved job orders by the POEA for Taiwan show that factory workers are in demand in Taiwan.

Best of luck to all Taiwan-bound OFWs. To other Filipinos looking for Taiwan jobs, beware of illegal recruiters.
