The drafting of a new economic immigration act targets three categories of foreign talent — professionals, mid-level skilled workers, and Taiwanese expatriates and their offspring.

The primary goal of the proposed legislation will be to boost recruitment and retention of mid-level skilled foreign talent in fields like engineering, manufacturing, and information and communication technology.

Mid-level skilled foreign talent is defined under the draft act as overseas students who graduate from high school or vocational school in Taiwan, workers who have been employed in Taiwan for a certain number of years, and technical staff recruited from abroad.

International students enrolled in specific education programs, such as the Overseas Youth Vocational Training School or Industry-University Cooperation Courses designed for youth from Southeast Asian and South Asian countries are also eligible.
