    Receiving Your Work Permit

    A work permit is required to start teaching. TeachTaiwan will handle all the paperwork. All you need to do is send copies of the following: a photo of yourself, your university degree, teaching license, passport and criminal background check, all of which will be sent to your school, notarized, and then submitted to Taiwan’s Ministry of Education. This process takes around 10 to 14 days to complete.

    Discuss Housing Options

    Your Teach Taiwan coordinator will contact you about housing options, and together you will discuss your budget, preferences, and needs. All potential locations will be within walking distance to your school.

    Next you will want to book your flight. This part is the teacher's responsibility so please remember to book correctly. Your flight ticket will be reimbursed according to your contract so remember to save your itinerary, receipt, and boarding pass to give to your school for reimbursement.
