Hey everyone. I and my wife are considering moving to Taiwan. I am from the U.S. and if I went over it would presumably be on a teaching contract. She is Italian and would come on a spousal visa. Her hope, ( as she speaks advanced Mandarin as well as fluent English) is that eventually, while in Taiwan, she could find a job that would be willing to sponsor her for a work visa, thereby allowing her to change her spousal visa to a work visa. Has anyone had experience changing a spousal visa to a work visa after finding a job in country? Do you have to leave the country and then come back in order to change the visa or can it all be done in country?

Thanks for the help

You might have better luck getting your answer to this at Forumosa (forumosa.com). Lots of knowledgeable legal-type folks there. It's a great overall resource for info about Taiwan, legal and otherwise.

Best of luck to you.
