What are the procedures for moving to Taiwan?

You should know that as an expatriate, you can under certain conditions benefit from an exemption from customs duties when your personal effects arrive in Taiwan.

You will need to provide several documents beforehand:

  • A copy of your passport 
  • A resident visa
  • Work contract
  • A letter authorising the clearance of your personal effects by an agent.
  • A detailed inventory of the goods

In order to benefit from the exemption for your unaccompanied personal effects, your move must take place within six months of the date of your expatriation to Taiwan.

 

Used household goods can be imported duty-free provided they are in non-commercial quantities.

When can I import my belongings into Taiwan?

Unaccompanied baggage must be imported prior to the passenger's entry or within 6 months of the date of entry. What is not imported within this period is considered normal cargo, and the provisions for duty-free personal effects no longer apply.

 

After your arrival in Taiwan, the passenger (or his or her agent) must apply for customs clearance within 15 days from the date of arrival of the unaccompanied baggage in Taiwan. The passenger (or his or her agent) must apply for customs clearance within this time limit, a delay penalty of NT$200 per day will be charged from the day after the deadline expires.

 

Please note that a storage fee is charged from the day the unaccompanied luggage is stored in the warehouse
