what are the processes for a couple (1 foreign, 1 Taiwanese) if they were to be married in the foreign land (male's home country)?

That is, household registration issues, appropriate visa for the man, etc?

AWOL,

If I understand your question you want to know what the procedure and requirements are to get married in the country of the foreign spouse?

Look at my website if this is what you are looking for - http://www.taiwanstuff.com/Marriage.htm This information is catered to Americans, however a lot of the requirements will still apply.

As salmon said, also check the archives.

Good luck.

ATTN: American Citizens living in Taiwan, please support American Citizens Abroad - ACA http://www.americansabroad.org/

Americans living in Taiwan CALL your senators and representatives and ask them to repeal FATCA and support residency based taxation (RBT) for Americans living abroad! Writing a letter is useless! FATCA has been implemented and banks will be collecting your information here. In addition renunciation fees are now $2350! Insane!

Simple. The foreigner applies for a JFRV (Joining Family Residence Visa) to enter Taiwan. Household registration and other issues follow from that. There's threads a plenty on how to do it. Search for JFRV.

I don't have time to search the archives either, so, from memory;
yes
yes

I would suggest, however, that you try to free up 30 minutes of your time in order to 'search the archives' (just go to the legal forums and browse through, actually) and gain some more in-depth knowledge to help you in your future life and work. Most people would consider several days well spent for this purpose.
