Visitor visa - This can be a multiple or single visitor visa. This type of visa is only issued in your home country. If you are teaching English, then your employer will get your visitor visa changed to a work permit. Extendable visitor visas are valid for stays up to 60 days and may be extended up to 6 months without leaving Taiwan if you are studying Mandarin. If you decide to stay longer than 6 months, you can then apply for a resident visa. In order to receive a 60 day extendable VISA from your local Taiwanese Consulate, you will need to have official documentation with you upon application.
