The Transmigration of Souls: "Taiwan's policy for recruiting foreign white-collar workers has been a lot looser than that for blue-collar workers. For instance, work permits granted to foreign professionals are initially valid for three years, and they can apply for an unlimited number of extensions. They can also be hired by two employers simultaneously and are free to change employers. At the same time, employers are not required to publicly post advertisements for local workers first, as they are for blue-collar workers. Furthermore, there is no quota imposed on the number of foreign white-collar workers allowed in Taiwan."
