Dates are flexible depending on student and department needs, and are decided case-by-case when acceptance offers are made.

-ITRI will obtain work (internship) permission for accepted interns, who must then obtain ROC visas from the nearest Taiwan Economic and Cultural Office before departing their home country (for locations/more info see http://www.taiwanembassy.org/dept.asp?mp=1&codemeta=locationIDE ).
-ITRI also offers some internships through the Taiwan Tech Trek program, which is run by the National Science Council of the ROC and targeted at 2nd-generation overseas Taiwanese. If you have Taiwanese ancestry, you can apply for internships at ITRI (and many other fine organizations in Taiwan) through the Taiwan Tech Trek website: https://ap0512.most.gov.tw/ttt/ (Note TTT application deadline is February 2, 2016.)
-ITRI will be closed to celebrate Lunar New Year from 2/06 – 2/14/2016 - we apologize for any delay in responding to your inquiries.
For ROC citizens
If you are an ROC citizen who does not hold any foreign passport, you are not eligible for the International Internship Program positions on this website. For those who hold only ROC citizenship, ITRI does offer internships, but this is handled separately by each department. If you are interested, please send your CV/resume to talent AT itri.org.tw, with a brief message indicating which department(s) are of interest to you.
Foreign males of Taiwanese descent, between ages 18 and 40 (inclusive), and carrying foreign passports are not advised to stay in Taiwan for more than four months. If you participate in this program and decide to arrive earlier or leave later than the scheduled program dates, the total length of your stay in Taiwan should not exceed four months to avoid conscription problems. For more details on military service, please check with your nearest ROC embassy, consulate or representative office, or with the Ministry of the Interior.
