One of the best places to live for expats

Working in TAIWAN

Employment Information

Taiwan has been subject to a vast range of foreign investment and high productivity, helping it to achieve its position as one of the world’s wealthier nations. Taiwan’s rapid industrial and economic growth in the late 20th century was so unprecedented that is has even been dubbed the ‘Taiwan Miracle’.

Some of Taiwan’s biggest industries include electronics, communications, semiconductors, petroleum refining, chemicals, and more. Many of the world’s top communication and technology firms are regularly establishing branches in Taiwan (Google is one such example), and many expats relocate here every year to find work with leading organisations.

Employees in Taiwan cannot work more than eight hours a day (unless overtime has been agreed) and cannot work more than 40 hours per week. At least two days of rest per week must be provided by employers in Taiwan. Usual business hours in Taiwan are 9:00am till 17:30pm for office staff, and 8:00am till 17:00pm for factory staff. At least an hour’s lunch break must be provided.

Leaves and Public Holidays

Paid annual leave in Taiwan is generally accrued based on an employee’s length of continuous service. This usually works in the following way:

  • 3 days of paid leave for an employee who has completed 6 months to less than a year of service
  • 7 days of paid leave for employees who have completed a year’s service
  • 10 days of paid leave for employees who have completed two years’ service
  • 14 days of paid leave for employees who have completed three years’ service
  • 15 days of paid leave for employees who have completed five years’ service
    • Generally, an additional day of paid leave is provided for each year of service thereafter (up to a maximum for 30 days).

Taiwan celebrates a range of public holidays where employees are not permitted to work. These holidays include:

  • New Year’s Day
  • Chinese New Year’s Eve
  • Lunar New Year
  • Peace Memorial Day
  • Qingming Festival
  • Children’s Day
  • Labour Day
  • Dragon Boat Festival
  • Mid-Autumn Festival
  • National Day

Cultural Information

Taiwan’s culture is heavily influenced by its Confucian Chinese and indigenous Taiwanese roots. The prevalent religious beliefs in Taiwan include Buddhism and Taoism, and the official language spoken is Mandarin.

The business culture is Taiwan in non-confrontational, professional, and polite. Taiwanese people are hard-working and generally work longer hours than most workers in other large economies.

Impacts from COVID-19

Taiwan, like other countries around the world, was impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. In terms of public health, Taiwan navigated the pandemic well and managed to curb deaths and infections throughout the country. Economically, Taiwan was impacted negatively by the pandemic, however as of late 2021 its economy began rebounding and growing.
