The government is considering allowing foreign nationals who hold Alien Permanent Resident Certificates (APRC) to buy into its economic stimulus voucher programme, according to Minister of Economic Affairs, Wang Mei-hua.
Minister without Portfolio Audrey Tang is encouraging the public to pre-order their government-issued stimulus vouchers and to choose the digital format if possible to avoid long lines when they are made available from tomorrow.
The National Development Council (NDC) has outlined its plans for the new stimulus voucher programme.
The cabinet says the upcoming round of government stimulus vouchers will not require an upfront payment - meaning the NT$5,000 in vouchers will be issued to residents free of charge.
Premier Su Tseng-chang has announced that all permanent foreign residents holding Alien Permanent Residence Cards (APRCs) and diplomats will soon be eligible for the government’s so-called “triple stimulus” consumer vouchers.
