Taiwan Immigration Policy

Taiwan Immigration Policy

Map:Taiwan Immigration Policy
According to Qing Dynasty regulations, one needed to apply for a permit from the county official before immigrating to Taiwan, and this was to prevent criminals or idlers from entering and becoming a source of unrest in the local society. Initially, the Qing Dynasty prohibited entire families from immigrating to Taiwan, and thus most of the earlier settlers were men. The Taiwan immigration policy was repeatedly lifted, re-enforced and lifted during Yongzheng and Qianlong regimes, and it was finally abolished after the Lin Shuang-Wen Incident during the latter period.
