If the medical subsidies for new immigrants who have not obtained Taiwanese household registration meet the conditions, they can apply within 3 months after seeing a doctor or being discharged from the hospital. However, those who have obtained national health insurance and are able to acquire medical benefits are not allowed to apply again. If the household population dies and is unable to burial, or suffers accidental injury or serious illness, leading to life difficulties, the application must be submitted within 3 months from the date of the occurrence of the emergency. Only once, for the newly added round-trip air ticket subsidy, applicants must also comply with the "Regulations on Supporting Families in Special Circumstances", and can apply according to needs.
Relevant application documents for the application form for the social assistance and flight ticket subsidy program for new immigrants of Taoyuan City who have not obtained Taiwanese household registration and families in special circumstances includes a copy of the residence permit, a copy of the cover of the post office or bank passbook, and a copy of the receipt, and other application documentation required.
