New policy from Ministry of Health and Welfare (National Health Insurance)

Ministry of Health and Welfare announced a new policy regarding National Health Insurance.

International students are legally obligated to enroll in the NHI program after a continuous residence in Taiwan for six months.

A continuous residence in Taiwan for six months is after deducting the number of days that he or she has been away from Taiwan.

(Students can leave Taiwan ONCE for less than 30 days.) The number of days that students are not in Taiwan does not count in the continuous residence. In short, if you leave Taiwan for more than 30 days, you have to recount 6 months from the latest date you entered Taiwan.

For further information, please contact Miss Nancy or Jubi at OISS office.
