    Foreign caregivers to receive extension on residency limit (2011/01/03)

    The legislature is considering extending the time limit that foreign caregivers can live and work in Taiwan. Legislators want to extend the limit from nine years to 12 after the president of the Taiwan Red Cross Society C.V. Chen, whose son requires 24-hour-a-day care, made representation to the Legislature Monday.

    In May this year, the foreign caregiver for Chen’s severely handicapped son will be forced to leave Taiwan after reaching the limit of 9 years in the country. But, seeing his son’s almost complete dependence on the caregiver, Chen visited the Legislature Monday in the hope that the caregiver’s residency can be extended to 12 years.

    If this amendment is not passed, Chen might cry. So, we need to be understanding.

    While Chen was trying to help his son, Interior Minister Jiang Yi-huah, whose son suffers from mild autism, expressed sympathy.

    Interior Minister
    The situation with my child is much less serious than that of Mr. Chen’s son. My son can take care of his basic living needs. We have trained him to take care of himself and clean himself. The situation can’t be compared with Mr. Chen’s difficulties but I can identify with him.

    The Council of Labor Affairs is not opposed (to the amendment) because this type of proposal does not affect the overall number of foreign laborers and also does not affect the rights of Taiwanese laborers.

    KMT Legislator Cheng Li-wun, who proposed the amendment, said extending the time for the current caregiver is a more stable solution than hiring a new one and will not raise the total number of foreign caregivers in the country. A high level of consensus has been achieved between governing and opposition legislators making Cheng optimistic ahead of negotiations that will take place on Tuesday.
