About Taipei Expats

This is the official information and service site of Taipei Expats, for those planning to be, or already are living, travelling, studying or working in Taipei.

Our online services offer expatriates with comprehensive support and information when it comes to either visiting or relocating to Taipei, the capital of Taiwan.

Statistics published by the Taiwanese government from the 27th of August 2015 report that there are around 614,800 foreign nationals living in Taiwan, of which around 144,000 of them are living in Taipei.

Whether it’s because of the county’s low cost of living,  it’s majestic landscapes or for being one of the most safest countries in the world, foreigners from all across the globe are calling Taiwan their home. As for expatriates living in Taipei, they also get to endure the unique qualities of Taiwan’s laid-back Asian capital city. Many foreigners across the world have blogged their reasons why they love Taipei, such as for its beautiful night markets, temples, memorial halls, parks, and of course, for its most famous landmark, Taipei 101, the city’s famous skyscraper. It was the tallest building in the world before it was surpassed by Dubai’s Burj Khalifa after 2011.

Why we’re offering expatriate services

life in Taipei as an expatriate isn’t always easy and smooth as many people may think. Despite the convenience of the city’s cheap public transport modes and the abundance of their 24/7 convenience stores, there are a multitude of factors involving language barriers and other differences in lifestyles and culture that can make an expatriate life frustratingly difficult and challenging at times. Based within Taipei, we at Taipei Expats dedicate our services to appreciate the needs of those who lose the ease and comforts of their home country to live abroad in Taipei.
