Renewal & Validity
How long is a gold card valid?
By default, between one and three years. If you are concerned your card (or underlying visa/work permit) may have become invalid or expired, you can check with the National Immigration Agency.
Can I renew my gold card?
No. There is no renewal capability for a Gold Card. You must complete the same application process you went through for your first card for all subsequent cards. Keep this in mind when planning your time in Taiwan - you must still meet the qualification criteria in order to receive another card.
When does the gold card’s validity begin?
When the application is officially approved. You will receive an email from the application portal. Importantly: your cards’ validity can start before you enter Taiwan or pick up your card. Keep this in mind when planning your move to Taiwan.
