I have visite three times and fell more deeply in love with the country & the people!! At this point trying to gather information on taxes, banking, driving, the important stuff to begin our journey in Taiwan. This site has been a wealth of information.

Hello Julien and to all your expat community.

My name is Nordine from Morocco.

i have been travelling around asia during the last 10 years.

I am currently living in Bangkok since 2018,travelled around Thailand, loved and still loving this great culture and lovely people,but i decided it's about time to explore new horizon.

February 2023 i've vusited taipei during one week,enjoyed it and decided to make it my next new home.

Since I'm not planning to work or open a business ,i have no idea about immigration, housing and health insurance.

Any tips ,advice from you will be  helpful and very appreciated.

Many thanks.
