MOI launches 5 Initiatives on January 1, 2018
Starting from January 1, 2018, the Ministry of the Interior (hereinafter referred to as MOI ) has launched 5 initiatives, where many services are now available online, including Taiwanese students (without household registration in the Taiwan area) as well as foreign and overseas Chinese students applying for ARC, or foreigners using Citizen Digital Certificate to check if they are prohibited from leaving the country. Other measures include simplifying the application procedure for entry/exit permit and Mini-Three-Links of Mainland China, Hong Kong and Macao residents, so as to increase greater convenience for the public. Foreign students, overseas Chinese students as well as Mainland China, Hong Kong and Macao residents studying in Taiwan can all benefit from these measures, making them feel more at home.

According to the MOI, previously, Taiwanese students (without household registration in the Taiwan area) applying for the ARC were required to present Parental Consent Letter. However, since January 1st this year, the application, extension or change of registration can be conducted online without the Parental Consent Letter, saving the public from traveling back and forth. Similarly, foreign or overseas Chinese students applying for resident certificates were required to go to service stations under the MOI in person, while in the future the application, extension or change of registration can also be conducted online. In addition, foreigners who want to check if they are banned from leaving the country can now check online through the National Immigration Agency’s official website by using Alien Citizen Digital Certificates, which saves them the hassle of having to visit the service station in person.

In terms of procedure simplification efforts, the MOI pointed out that currently Mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau residents who have Taiwan residency are required to present “IC chip card of R.O.C. (Taiwan) Resident Certificate” as well as the inspection chart “R.O.C. (Taiwan) Exit & Entry permit” when entering or leaving the country. In the future, neither the inspection chart nor the entry and departure stamps are required. Furthermore, for Mainland Chinese coming to Taiwan via the Mini-Three-Links, measures such as “Reduction of Application Documents Required for Individual travels via the Mini-Three-Links (Class G Endorsement not required)”, “Reduction of Review Time for Application of Culture & Business Exchanges via Mini-Three-Links from 5 working days to 3” and “Relaxing Restrictions on Activities Permitted for Traveling via the Mini-Three-Links” will be thoroughly planned in the future.

The MOI stressed that following the trend of globalization, the MOI and related government agencies will continue to work hand in hand to build up Taiwan as a friendly, safe, and convenient environment with greater diversity and embrace internationalism.
