Pre-Arrival Overview


Congratulations on your admission to National Taipei University! We are excited to welcome you to campus. The following resources will help you prepare for your arrival to campus and time at the university.



There is NO “Student Visa” in Taiwan. Instead, Taiwan offers 2 types of Visa for foreign students:

2. Resident Visa


Since the Master Program in Smart Healthcare Management is a 2-year degree program, you are required to apply for a Resident Visa.

We recommend international students to live in on-campus dorm. Due to domestic law, international students will need a co-signer and deposit when sigining leasing contract. For on-campus dormitory application, NTPU will send you an email and provide you with more details.
