Taiwan eases residency rules for Chinese spouses

TAIPEI--Taiwan has removed a regulation that required Chinese spouses of Taiwanese citizens to find a guarantor to vouch for their presence in Taiwan when applying for residency, the National Immigration Agency (NIA) said Saturday.

In addition to discarding the guarantor requirement, Taiwan will allow multiple entry permits for Chinese spouses who hold residency, effective Nov. 25, the NIA said.

However, Chinese spouses of Taiwanese citizens applying for visitor visas will still need to list a guarantor, the agency said.

The newly amended regulations also revised the age limit for children of Taiwanese citizens in China seeking to apply for permanent residency in Taiwan, according to the NIA.

The age limit has been changed from 18 to 20, the agency said.
