為使入境僑、外生能安心配合14天居家檢疫,移民署臺北市服務站推廣外來學生線上申辦居留證系統,並製作英文操作教學短片,協助僑、外生輕鬆申辦,檢疫期過後,即可領證,省去排隊等待時間。

TAIPEI (The China Post) — In order to help foreign students feel at ease with the 14-day home quarantine, the Taipei City Service Center of National Immigration Agency (NIA, 移民署臺北市服務站) has launched an online application system for foreign students to apply for a residence permit. 

The center has released a short instructional video in English to help students smoothly complete their application so that they can receive their residence permits as soon as the quarantine ends, without having to wait in line.

今年受疫情影響來臺外籍人士減少,然而隨著國際部分疫情得到控制,我國也逐步放寬境外人士來臺限制,學生尤列為優先開放對象,以維護莘莘學子的就學權益。

The number of foreigners coming to Taiwan has decreased this year due to the pandemic. However, as some countries have brought the situation under control, restrictions on foreigners coming to Taiwan have gradually been relaxed, with priority given to students, in order to protect their educational rights.

為了避免僑外生入境後蜂擁至移民署各地服務站趕辦居留證,增加群聚風險,移民署推廣外來學生線上申辦系統,使僑生及外來學生申請居留證不需要親臨排隊,居家檢疫期間也能輕鬆透過網路申請,且網路申辦只要5個工作天,檢疫期間過後即可至指定服務站領取,方便又迅速。

To avoid foreign students rushing to local immigration service centers and, therefore, increase the risk of cluster infection, the NIA encourages foreign students to use the online application system to apply for a residence permit.

In that case, they can easily apply through the internet during the home quarantine period, and wouldn’t need to stand in line in person. The online application takes only five working days, so the residence permits can be collected at designated service centers as soon as the quarantine ends, making it a faster and more convenient experience.

外生線上系統假日也可使用,24小時無休,如果有操作上的問題,則可在週一至週五上午8點30分至下午5點30分撥打移民署客服專線:02-2796-7162諮詢。

The system is open around the clock, including weekends. Those who encountered problems regarding the system are welcomed to call the hotline at (02) 2796-7162 from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
