Q1: Does the Act for the Recruitment and Employment of Foreign Professionals apply to a person who holds both ROC citizenship and foreign nationality?

A1: According to Article 93 of the Immigration Act, ROC citizens who also hold foreign citizenship and enter Taiwan with foreign passports are subject, mutatis mutandis, to the Act for the Recruitment and Employment of Foreign Professionals.

Moreover, according to Article 17 of the Regulations Governing Visiting, Residency, and Permanent Residency of Aliens, any ROC citizen currently residing in the Taiwan Area who has entered Taiwan with a foreign passport and is applying for residency, or an extension of stay or residency, shall first register with the Household Registration Office for moving out his/her place of residency in Taiwan, then the NIA may accept his/her application. Therefore, dual nationals who have entered the country with a foreign passport may not apply for the extension of stay, residence or residence extension before they register with the Household Registration Office for moving out his/her place of residency in Taiwan.
