Is it legal to marry a Taiwanese citizen just for a visa, and divorce them after 1 year when you can get a work visa?
I wish to start my own business, but unless I have a visa from a marriage, I would not legally be allowed to work for my own company for the first year.
Business requirements to hire a foreign manager as a startup company:
- 1. Owns at least 1/3 of company
- 2. Company has NT$500,000 paid in capital
- 3. Company has NT$3,000,000 in revenue its first year EDIT: This is NOT entirely correct, see link below
I could marry a friend, or previous partner in Taiwan, and stay married until my own company is legally capable of hiring me. In the USA this can be seen as a fraudulent marriage, what about in Taiwan?
The answer is, you don't have to get married.
