According to [National Development Council], the Taiwan Employment Gold Card is part of the [Act for the Recruitment and Employment of Foreign Professional Talent], implemented in October 2017. It is part of a more comprehensive government initiative to attract highly skilled foreign talent to Taiwan.

Launched in 2018, the Taiwan Employment Gold Card is a 4-in-1 card, that includes a resident visa, work permit, Alien Resident Certificate (ARC), and re-entry permit, which allows you to leave and re-enter Taiwan multiples times over the course of 1-3 years. Applicants can apply online without sponsorship.
