Such areas include China, Hong Kong, Macau, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar, Thailand, North Korea, South Korea, and Russia. The Response Center stated that Bulacan Province and Rizal Province of the Philippines are suspected to have an African Swine Fever outbreak; therefore, the BAPHIQ made the decision to list the Philippines as a high-risk area starting on August 19. All carry-on luggage carried by travelers from the Philippines is required to be checked. Other airports in Taiwan check all travelers’ check-in and carry-on luggage. All checks are carried out by the Customs Administration’s X-ray machines and BAPHIQ’s canines.

African Swine Fever is widespread in Asia, and the Response Center urges Taiwan’s domestic pig farmers to promptly improve biosecurity measures to strictly prevent the invasion of the epidemic and support disease prevention efforts. The Response Center would also like to remind all travelers entering Taiwan not to violate regulations by carrying pork products into the country. Violators will face serious penalties, so do not break the law.

【New Stories in Taiwan】 Give children something better than the best - the commitment of a Mexican soccer coach! http://ifi.immigration.gov.tw/ct.asp?xItem=17560&ctNode=36570&mp=ifi_en 足球1

Ten years ago, I traveled from Mexico to Taiwan in order to learn Chinese. As a soccer enthusiast I noticed Taiwan does not promote soccer as a sport, so the idea to promote soccer in Taiwan sprout in my heart. I met my wife in Taiwan, and she has always been encouraging and supporting the endeavor. After our child is born, we founded the Taipei Football Academy (TFA).

Taiwan was dubbed the “soccer desert,” so, it is very difficult to promote soccer in the early stage. However, after spending time and effort on teaching soccer, parents gradually started to recognize what we do and recommend us to others. I believe it is no coincidence that we met who we met. Watching children grow up brightens the heart, but watching children play soccer sooth the soul. So, we continue to enrich our life year after year. It is not until we tried and survived that we realized you only need to persevere and you'll make it through many things in life.

足球2

Keeping true to the traditional soccer training regimen used in Mexico, children in Taiwan were able to break free from the boundary of classroom and improve their physical stamina. Children having fun playing soccer gives them incentive to improve their skills, so I encourage children to continue practice and their perseverance will give them good results! This attitude is possibly the best lesson soccer can give to the children!

Every stage in life has a different goal for learning.
Parent said my teaching method is a great inspiration for the education system in Taiwan.
Because Taiwan's education often lacks a sense of purpose, the only goal for studying is to deal with tests. As a result, many students mistakenly think once they get into college then everything is sunshine and flowers afterwards. However, real life is not so simple. A good soccer player needs to be creative and explosive, forceful education only limits creativity. Taiwanese parents place great importance on test grades, so many of them don't understand the difference between tests and competition.
Winning or losing is not important in a competition, but once you step on that field, you need to make it a good game. Enjoy the game while you are on the field. It is undeniable that winning a game is amazing,
but losing the game only brings sweeter victory in the future. Everything is the process that build up to success. To be able to truly learn from a game, a player must take time to digest the game.

足球3
International perspective doesn't come from learning English alone, you also need to know soccer. Soccer is a great educational tool for life, and a great way to gain an international perspective. When you put on your jersey overseas, many people will greet you. Sometimes even strangers can even become very friendly if you support the same team. Taiwanese always think learning English equals having international perspective, but what would you talk about in English is even more important. Young people need content to talk about in their conversations. If a child knows soccer, plays soccer, and has the stamina to properly play soccer, then the child will be welcomed by their peers. Soccer is an international language. We are not looking to turn our children into star soccer players, but if we can cultivate them into persons that truly understand soccer, then they'll have a ticket to the international community.

足球4

It is gratifying to see parents went from not understanding soccer, to learning soccer with their children, and now they can chat about soccer. I see the positive influence soccer has on the children, and how it created a closer bond between parents and their children. More importantly, I see how soccer strengthen the relationships amongst the parents. I often tell my students' parents that soccer is a life-time thing, and as long as they play soccer, they'd be happy. Whether it is playing soccer with an adult or a child, I could always find the fun of learning in soccer. This is the charm of soccer.

There is no shortcut in sports, only hard work. Regardless what your genetics, and background may be, you have to work hard and persevere to be successful. Doesn't matter how much hard work you put into it; you have to believe success is not fat away. Make your child a unique, confident and grateful child. Hang in there, and your children will see the best version of themselves.

足球5

Soccer can teach children how to handle defeat, face difficulties in the future, and that perseverance makes dream come true. Even if they don't play soccer in the future, they can still relief stress through the sport when facing societal and work pressure or emotional stress. Soccer makes children healthier, and that is our motivation to intorduce soccer to children in Taiwan.

Did you play soccer today? Let's help our children develop their soccer energy!
TFA continues to train ourselves as a team. We hope Taiwanese parents can invest more time in their children like parents in other countries. And we also hope that we can bring together everyone in Taiwan through soccer. By promoting soccer one step at a time, hopefully one day, Taiwan can have a soccer culture of its own.

【New Stories in Taiwan】 Unfair Advantage! Cheng Yao-tien Transformed His Indonesian Mother Tongue into a Career Change http://ifi.immigration.gov.tw/ct.asp?xItem=17397&ctNode=36570&mp=ifi_en 鄭堯天

Cheng Yao-tien, 29, is the son of a new immigrant. He used to work at Pou Chen Group Indonesia branch but recently changed to Hon Hai Precision Industry Indonesia branch. His annual salary has already topped NT$1 million before turning 30. He said he was able to reached where he is now is because of a strong sense of inferiority. "I was not a top student; I knew that if I wanted to make something of myself, I must go overseas! So, I chose to take advantage of my Indonesian, since it is my unfair edge, and fulfilled my dream of going overseas."

** Being half Indonesian doesn't affect interpersonal relationships
Cheng Yao-tien's father was sent to Indonesia by his company when he was young. That's where he met Chang Hui-fang, Cheng Yao-tien's mother. When Cheng Yao-tien was one year old, the whole family moved to Indonesia, and they did not move back to Taiwan until he was in elementary school. He said being half Indonesian doesn't interfere with his relationships or make him awkward. On the other hand, new-immigrant children who are embarrassed by their identity and lack self-identity are often bullied and single out by other students.

** Family education is the key to positivity
Cheng Yao-tien wore a batik outfit as he shared his experience with great enthusiasm.
He said that family education is the key. If parents give positive family education and energy, their children will not feel as if they are different from other kids. Because his own mother was confident and generous, he never felt inferior to others.

After graduating from Tzu Chi University Department of Social Work, Cheng stayed in Taiwan and worked for two years. Then he wanted to work overseas. The world's largest shoe manufacturer, Pou Chen Group wanted to interview him via video chat, because he speaks Indonesian. At the time he had not spoken Indonesian for more than 10 years, and he had to turn to his mother for help. Cheng's mother drafted a self-introduction in Indonesian for him. He stuck the introduction to his computer screen and read it to “fool” the interviewer. He got the job.

** More languages means a stronger resume
Cheng encourages new-immigrant children who are in high school and college to learn their mother tongue. He said, "I cheated on my interview, but you don't have to!" Having an extra language skill on your resume is what makes your resume stand out from hundreds if not thousands of resumes. Whether you end up getting hired or not, you already have a better chance than those who were eliminated immediately. After entering Pou Chen Group's factory in Indonesia, Cheng noticed that managers from China did not understand Indonesian and frequently swore, which resulted in bad relationships between them and Indonesian workers. Cheng spent a lot of time practicing Indonesian and was able to win the hearts of the Indonesian workers. He even helped Taiwanese and Chinese managers learning Indonesian. Cheng said he did not study at a star school, and his grade was often at the bottom of the class, so he decided to take advantage of his language skill and go overseas. He saw the success of his older brother in Indonesia and wanted to go there as well.

Cheng sincerely recommended that new-immigrant children learn their mother tongues. It is much easier to re-learn a language than it is to learn a brand-new language at an older age, when it is much more difficult and painful.

** A multicultural background helped him get a head start in life
Chang Hui-fang said that in Taiwan most grandparents speak Chinese to children at home, but she would speak simple Indonesian to her three children when they started Kindergarten. She started her Indonesian lessons with the simple phrases "eat, take a shower, and brush your teeth," and when her children knew how to write, she would start teaching them to write in Indonesian. In many cases, Taiwanese families will not allow new-immigrant mothers to teach their native language to the children. Chang Hui-fang said that in her personal experience, many families often believe that if a new-immigrant mother can't speak Chinese, she will not be able to teach her children. However, Chang noted that children are smart. They can speak Chinese to their father, their mother tongue to their mother, and Taiwanese to their grandmother. Children can absorb and learn different languages when they are young, without being forced. This is the most natural way to learn a language.

Language skill and a multicultural background gave Cheng Yao-tien an advantage. As a fluent Indonesian speaker, he had a head start in the fourth most populated nation on earth: Indonesia.

【New Communities in Taiwan】Catch a Glimpse of Myanmar on Zhonghe Huaxin Street http://ifi.immigration.gov.tw/ct.asp?xItem=17389&ctNode=36570&mp=ifi_en 緬甸1

If you plan to visit Huaxin Street in Zhonghe District, make sure you do it in the morning. Before the clock strikes noon, many authentic Myanmar vendors in the market start to close for the day. Myanmar baba noodles and split pea noodles served in popular stores also begin to sell out.

In Myanmar, tea houses are important community hubs that people cannot do without. Myanmar-born Taiwanese film director Midi Z clearly shows the importance of tea houses in the movie Return to Burma. Tea houses can be found even in the smallest Myanmar villages, providing snacks and desserts. They are places for great food, as well as hubs for socializing and sharing information.

Huaxin Street is the main settlement of new immigrants from Myanmar, and the tea house culture has also sprouted in a foreign land. Tea house tables and chairs are usually placed on verandas, attracting Myanmar new immigrants early in the morning. They sip their tea slowly, read newspapers, and enjoy chatting with their friends. There you can even see people concentrating on playing chess. Listen carefully, and you will hear an unfamiliar language flowing through the air. It's almost as if you are in a foreign land. (Related Article - Find Korean Snacks on Zhongxing Street and Enjoy Myanmar Cuisine on Huaxin Street)

Behind every Myanmar immigrant is a winding story, like Huaxin Street's twist and turns and mix of flavors. Myanmar cuisine is a melting pot of different foods. It encompasses the foods of local Myanmar indigenous people and neighboring ethnic groups. Elements of Yunnan, central Guangdong, Minnan Chinese, Bengal, Indian, and Thai style foods can be seen in Myanmar food.

緬甸2
(Leek roots and Thai eggplant)

Huaxin Street’s Lane 30 is a traditional marketplace with eye-grabbing food ingredients everywhere to be found. Gigantic bitter bean pods loved by the Burmese, white leek roots for fish rice, round and plump Thai eggplant and Turkey berry for green curry, galangal, tamarind leaves, dried shrimp, lemongrass, dried fish, samosa, and many fried foods are all common cuisine found on a Burmese dinner table.

When you walk up to the stalls and ask the vendors about the ingredients but only receive Burmese words in reply, you know you are deep in a foreign land in Taipei. (Extended Reading - A Hunger for Home: Home Flavors in Zhongzhen Market)

Dodge into an alley next to the market and you will see tables with banana trunks on them; that's the authentic Myanmar fish soup noodles shop calling you. The delicious fish soup noodles incorporate banana trunks and banana bark into the soup. The top of the noodle soup is often sprinkled with fried goodies.

If you are looking for a larger meal, you can consider Yunnan Dai rice noodles. Myanmar baba noodles, split pea noodles, curry over rice, coconut noodles, and fish soup noodles are great choices as well. You can also consider appetizing Yunnan- and Myanmar-style chilled noodles sprinkled with lemon juice or tamarind sauce. (Related Article - Donggang, Pingtung: Myanmar Style Sour and Spicy New Year's Dishes)

Small but amazing spots can be found all over Huaxin Street. Roti bread and roti canai are especially loved by everyone who tries them. The baking process of roti bread is captivating. The baker masterfully tosses and swings the dough and then places it on a piece of round stone. After a sprinkle of water, he sticks the dough into the oven, and in no time a slice of bubbling roti bread is done. You can dip roti bread in butter or bean paste for a delicious treat, and it's even better with milk tea.

Myanmar pastries often use natural sweetener made from coconut milk, brown sugar, and glutinous rice. There is even a unique semolina cake topped with poppy seeds that Burmese people love. In Huaxin Street you could often see pandan silver needle noodles (a.k.a. chilled noodles) in plastic cups, and white yogurt. Add sugar water to the chilled noodles, and enjoy the yogurt with brown sugar syrup. The flavor of the yogurt will amaze you.

緬甸3
(Gold Owl)

Shops on Huaxin Street love to display golden owl lucky charms as symbols of good fortune and prosperity. When the weather is good in Little Myanmar, you can often see people sun drying pickled vegetables, a sight rarely seen on the streets of Taipei. There are also two grocery stores on Huaxin Street that are worth visiting. You can find golden owl lucky charms, cosmetic thanakha powder, tsaoko (a spice from Myanmar), and various pickled vegetables. Visitors can even try on traditional longyi (a sheet of cloth commonly worn in Burma) in the store.

緬甸4
(Dried pickled vegetable/tsaoko)

Turn into the alley next to Kutkai Beef Stew from Huaxin Street, and you will see Ah-Fen Posu Buns. This famous mom-and-pop store only sells three kinds of stuffed buns: meat and vegetable, bean paste, and sesame. Yunnan posu buns have light and fluffy breading. Once you tear one open, you will see layers of breading and delicious stuffing. Ah-Fen Posu Buns is actually Ah-fen's house. In the morning you can see cheerful Ah-fen making posu buns in the living room while chatting with visitors who come in and out. The Yunnan dialect fills the air.

If you want to know more about Huaxin Street, you can join tours jointly operated by Taipei Walking Tour and Brilliant Time bookstore. Guides will point out things only a local would know. It is like taking an express train of knowledge, as different scenery and fun are only a moment away.

Wherever there is family, there is a home.” http://ifi.immigration.gov.tw/ct.asp?xItem=17203&ctNode=36570&mp=ifi_en 小陶1

Siao Tao: “Running a B&B is very close to my ideal life. I am also studying for tour-guide and tour-manager certificate tests. Once I receive my certificate, I will be able to take people from Taiwan to Vietnam or vice versa, helping people of the two countries to learn about each other’s culture. Then I can also go back to my home in Vietnam often.”

Siao Tao is a new immigrant who came from Quảng Ninh in Northern Vietnam to marry her husband in Taiwan. She started working in the fields when she was only six years old to help earn money and improve her family’s life. She moved to Hanoi when she was 16 to learn Korean. Her goal was to work in Korea, but instead, she met a young Taiwanese man that stayed in her aunt’s B&B. This young man eventually became her husband. He recalled his first impression of Siao Tao: “Seeing her nails filled with dirt told me that she must be a hard-working girl.” He had to leave just two hours after they met, so he asked for a picture of her. After returning to Taiwan, he quickly hired a translator to help him communicate with her. Their courtship lasted a year. When Siao Tao turned 19, she married her husband and came to Taiwan.

小陶2

※ Learning How to Take Responsibility
Before getting married, Siao Tao was already expecting to learn about running a B&B. The first day she was in Taiwan, she woke up at two o’clock in the morning and learned how to make breakfast for 30 people with her mother-in-law, all while trying to overcome the language barrier. After customers checked out, she made the beds and cleaned the rooms. After two weeks, she had already learned the in and outs of the business, and after a year, the couple took over operation of the B&B.

Siao Tao’s mother-in-law wanted to help her adapt to life in Taiwan quicker, so on the third day the newlywed was in Taiwan, she helped her sign up for supplementary elementary school. Siao Tao is a fast learner, and after three months of school she could hold a conversation with a Taiwanese person. Then her mother-in-law took her to a New Immigrant Family Service Center and helped her begin serving as a social worker for new-immigrant women and as a translator. Siao Tao is now a lecturer at the center and the interpreter for the Hualien District Court and the Public Health Center system.

※ Dream of Becoming a Social Worker and a Tour Guide
“When I first came to Taiwan, I often missed home. I would call my parents to talk to them. My parents-in-law and husband would also go on bike rides to the shore with me. However, getting used to a new environment is not that easy, and sometimes I would cry. It is a slow process.

In the first few years, Siao Tao could feel the prejudice Taiwanese people have against foreign spouses. They often think foreign spouses marry Taiwanese people for money. She even experienced customers using discriminatory language when calling to reserve a room. When she was a volunteer at the New Immigrant Family Service Center, she often handled cases in which foreign spouses were mistaken as house cleaners and caretakers, as well as those who have experienced domestic violence. Because of what she had experienced, she was afraid to interact with Taiwanese people.

One day at one or two o’clock in the morning, she got a phone call from a former New Immigrant Family Service Center director, Ms. Yang Hua-mei, asking for help. Ms. Yang asked her to go to a police station and help interpret for an abused foreign spouse. Siao Tao’s father-in-law took her and her three-month-old son to the police station. She did not realize the abused foreign spouse was Indonesian until she arrived. This incident touched her deeply, showing her that Taiwanese people actually do care for foreign spouses. She made up her mind to work harder so she could help new-immigrant sisters in more areas. Later she applied to National Hualien Commercial High School, hoping to eventually study social work in college.

小陶3

※ Where There Is Family, There Is a Home
Siao Tao’s new house was completed in September 2017. It is also a B&B with the first floor serving as a café. Following her plan, she began to learn how to make traditional Vietnamese coffee, bread, and pho, with the goal of opening a restaurant in the future. Every day she puts on her favorite traditional Vietnamese dress to receive her guests so they might learn more about Vietnam.

In the eight years she has lived in Taiwan, she only went back to Vietnam four times, two of which were when she was craving authentic Vietnamese food during her pregnancy. Though in Taiwan a simple twist of the faucet and will make water come out, and a flip of a switch will make lights turn on, she often reminisces about her childhood in Vietnam, how she used to drink rain to quench thirst and relied on starlight to see at night. That was when she was content with the moment and not worried about the future.

小陶4

During her time helping new-immigrant women, she often feels sad, angry, and helpless. Her mother-in-law encouraged her to use travel as a way to improve the understanding between Taiwan and Vietnam. That’s why she started to actively prepare for the tour-guide certificate test. She kept her Vietnam citizenship and is ready to go back and take care of her aging parents. She also made an agreement with her husband that after they retire, they can live in both Vietnam and Taiwan.

Siao Tao started to teach children about Vietnamese culture at a young age. She was especially proud when her daughter said to the kindergarten teacher, “I am Vietnamese,” with pride and confidence.

Siao Tao believes that where there is family, there is a home. She hopes when her children grow up, they can confidently say they are both Taiwanese and Vietnamese.

Travelers must take care not to violate Taiwan regulations. We must prevent the virus from entering Taiwan to protect the country’s pig farming industry.

The fine for travelers who violate the regulations by bringing in pork and pork products from African swine fever zones starts at NT$200,000. Foreign travelers who do not pay the fine cannot enter Taiwan. BAPHIQ stated that of all the African swine fever countries in Asia, only Mongolia has a minimal amount of travelers. Cambodia is the new focus for border epidemic prevention, after China and Vietnam.

Marriage and Family: Starting Out On A New Journey In Life
A happy marriage involves both husband and wife where both parties support each other emotionally. Together, both husband and wife face joy and sadness together, encourage and support each other along the way, and maintain a good communication and listening skill to build a solid foundation on which the family thrives and grows. A marriage becomes valid only after making a marriage registration in any one of the household registration offices in Taiwan. You may visit the "marriage registration procedures" on this website to download all the documents required for marriage registration.


Government Provides New Parents with Adequate Resources: To Get Started with the Parenting
At present, the proportion of newborns from the new immigrant family is on the rise. Foreign spouses who get married in Taiwan are faced with cultural differences, language barriers, and expected pregnancies, leaving them helpless without knowing what to do exactly. Each stage of marriage from pregnancy, childbirth, to parenting consume a lot of energy. Getting ready for a baby, even new moms with ROC nationality are in total disarray not to mention foreign spouses. In order to meet the needs of foreign spouses who are about to give birth, the government provides a wide range of subsidies and health screening to help foreign spouses nurture the next generation.


In order to help pregnant women solve different problems, the Ministry of Health and Welfare set up a "Pregnancy and Childbirth Information Website http://mammy.hpa.gov.tw" and a "toll-free pregnancy and childbirth hot-line 0800-870-870" in a total of 4 languages including Chinese, Taiwanese, Vietnamese, and Indonesian. Since both new mom and dad are faced with different challenges throughout their marriage including wedding, pregnancy, childbirth, child education, and adolescence education, the new parents must make good use of the “Health 99 Website https://health99.hpa.gov.tw” that provides a wide variety of resources covering information on pregnancy, childbirth, child health, healthcare, cancer prevention, chronic disease prevention, drug use, healthy diet, and nutrition care. For more information, please refer to the [childbirth and parenting] section on this website to learn about government subsidies for childbirth and parenting.


Parenting with Love
The most important parenting attitudes when raising children:
(1) Caring and raising children requires the involvement of both husband and wife. Whether it is a father or a mother, the time and effort they devoted to parenting have the same effect on their children. Therefore, "co-parenting" is the first step toward caring and raising children. It is important to let your spouse know that, "During the course of parenting, you are as important as I am!"
(2) Both the husband and wife should hold the same attitude and use the same standard in parenting, support the parenting attitudes and practices of each other by words and actions, and be consistent in their own actions and what they teach their children.
(3) Willing to discuss with each other over the parenting methods and strategies, face up to the conflicts in parenting, and willing to find a solution for parenting through discussion.
(4) Since the process of parenting is inevitably frustrating and overwhelming, parents should participate in the parenting education activities held by each unit or visit parent education website (such as iCoparenting) or social media website (such as iCoparenting Facebook Fan Page) to improve their knowledge and skill for parenting.


113 Domestic Violence Hot-Line for First-Line Rescue
If you find your spouse with violence tendency or fall victim to domestic violence yourself, please seek external assistance instead of keeping it to yourself. 113 Domestic Violence Hot-Line is a set of toll-free phone number through which professional social workers provide 24-hour & 24/7 phone reception services that not only support a total of 7 languages including Chinese, Taiwanese, English, Vietnamese, Thai, Khmer, and Indonesian, but also provide the new immigrants with a three-way calling and in-time rescue so that the victims can live with a peace of mind. For details, please refer to the "Targets of 113 Domestic Violence Hot-line" on this website.


A happy marriage requires involvement from both husband and wife, facing all trivial and important things in life, and try to listen to and communicate with each other whenever there is a conflict in marriage. Only by then can a happy and harmonious marriage be realized.

Community Care Centers Provide Seniors with Local Services
Community care centers provide seniors with care visits, telephone greetings and counseling as well as referral services. Also, according to local seniors’ needs, the centers will provide meal services or organize health promotion activities. Each center can provide more than 3 services. It is hoped that through localized community care, seniors can stay and live in a familiar environment, which gives the caregiver of the family appropriate time to rest to prevent the deterioration of long-term care problems and enable the community members to help themselves and each other. Community care centers at every county and city can be found on Ministry of Health and Welfare’s “Community Care Center Services Website (https://ccare.sfaa.gov.tw/home/index).”

4. Denture Subsidy for Middle- and Low-Income Seniors
To enhance the promotion of the seniors’ welfare, improve the seniors’ health, and lesson the seniors’ financial burden, middle- and low-income seniors over 65 years old are offered denture subsidies to maintain their life quality and dignity.

Welcoming Aging Society and Establishing A Complete Long-Term Care System
Aging and baby bust changes Taiwan’s population structure, which increases the financial burden of family care. More and more people give up their life quality and jobs to take care of their family members. Due to this, the government plant a long-term care system to tackle the dilemma that an aging population brings. For more information about long-term care, please visit the following website (https://ifi.immigration.gov.tw/ct.asp?xItem=9884&ctNode=36461&mp=ifi_zh).


1957 Welfare Counseling Line; Getting Help with One Call

The longer a person live, the more common the pain finds him. To let the seniors live with dignity and lessen caregivers’ burden, the governments provide various medical subsidies.
