Legalize degree at home for work permit application

Hello friends,

I have been offered a job in a local Taiwanese trade company. Now my question is, do I need to legalize and translate/notarize my University degree from Spain in order to apply for the work permit and residency in Taiwan?

thanks in advance for your attention and help.

Here we go according to the CLA this afternoon:

1. A university degree does not need to be certified or legalized (TECO/TRO) for a professional, non-teaching job but it may be requested depending upon the country or university.

2. Professional certificates may be required for certain professional jobs. Those do not need to be certified or legalized (TECO/TRO) but it may be requested depending upon the country or body or competent authority.

3. A teacher's certificate is required to work at certain schools (govt listed) and that does not need to be certified or legalized (TECO/TRO) but it may be requested depending upon the country.

4. A university degree does not need to be certified or legalized (TECO/TRO) for a teaching job at a buxiban or such but it may be requested depending upon the country or university or just 'cause.

5. Translations must be provided of non-Chinese language documents in most cases and yes, you should submit a translation of your degree.

6. Original degrees and certificates are usually not required. It never hurts though to have a couple of certified true copies made in your home country to bring with you. I suspect with Spain that you should be alright without having TECO/TRO legalize those certified true copies. If in doubt though ask your future employer to check with CLA in Taiwan directly.

7. A number of years ago I believe they were asking for notarized/certified and legalized (TECO/TRO) copies of degrees from some better known countries for teaching positions.
