Mine was for a teaching job.

Another guy the next day said I didn't.

Yeah it's true. I don't need one for my non-teaching job. But the company give me one as a perk

well from what I was able to gather you can only get tested at a hospital...I was surprised to find it's not covered by insurance! Government wants the people to be encouraged to have clean teeth but not to know their HIV status...?

Locals don't get HIV, just dirty foreigners.

Address:
(Near Guting MRT)
南昌醫學檢驗院
地址:台北市福州街11-9號

Telephone:

T: 02-2321-0139

Opening times?

M-F 8am – 8pm. Sat 8am – 10am

Does anyone at the clinic speak English?
Yes, basic English

Test cost
NT$800

How long for the test results?
Test morning = result afternoon. Test afternoon = result following morning.

Are the results also in English?
Yes

Is the test anonymous?
Yes. ID not required. You need to write a name at registration, but the clinic said they wouldn’t know if someone gave a false name/details. In fact, the clinic volunteered this idea/suggestion without being asked.

If test is positive, does the clinic report result/individual to the government?
No. The clinic does not report anything to the government. But they do advise the individual go to a specialist HIV hospital for further tests. The clinic can’t and won’t make you go to the hospital (I double checked this). The specialist hospital then does further tests. This hospital DOES require your true name and ID. If you test positive for HIV they have to inform the government*

*I believe this could lead to serious complications with your visa status here in Taiwan. Not that this will be the main thing on your mind or should delay you from getting further advice and support.

Does the clinic do other types of tests (STD, etc)?
Yes, but I didn't ask which ones.

This place no longer does HIV tests. The info is very much outdated, as the woman there said they had not done these tests "in a long time."

And so, to sumarize nearly 9 years worth of comments, nobody knows of a place on the island which will do a comprehensive STD check? :bravo:

The people here have sex only with their wives. Missionary position. In the dark. After Match of the Day on a Saturday evening. And were virgins when they got married.

Not so. They don't have sex at all. With anyone. Haven't you heard about the "population crisis?"

I am surprised to hear about the disappearance of that testing centre. Anyway, you can still get an HIV test done at any hospital, although it's not anonymous and you have to pay for it (I remember about NT$600). As for anything else - possibly not, at least not on demand (no Taiwanese person in their right mind would ask for such a thing, so you'll be treated to the interesting spectacle of a blushing, giggling doctor if you do).
