Taiwan Increases Background Screening Requirement For Foreigner Teachers

The Supplementary Education Act will require Taiwanese teachers to submit police criminal record certificates and a "certificate of good conduct" for foreigners applying for work at cram schools in Taiwan.

According to the Workforce Development Agency, the latter certificate must apply nationwide and is a document that proves that an applicant does not have a record of criminal offenses.

In the United States, this FBI Identity History Summary could take 10-12 weeks to be processed. The background check applies to cram schools only and to those teachers who are applying for the first time. It also applies to teachers who have applied since June 16 or who have yet to complete their application process from an earlier date.
