Taiwan to relax visa requirements for construction workers
Despite the current travel restrictions caused by Covid-19, the Taiwan government has reportedly made a decision to allow easier hiring of expats for construction projects. The current rules states that projects must cost NT$10billion/US$330million and last at least 15 months, but this will now be relaxed where there are skill shortages.
The move comes after construction companies claimed that many government contracts are for less than NT$10bn, and hence the rule was ineffective. Changing the rules will allow an additional 1,382 migrant workers to be hired, according to Taiwan’s Public Construction Commission.
