SIM Cards

It's highly recommended that you should apply for a student plan for the SIM card at Taoyuan International Airport. Present your passport and the letter of admission to any of onsite mobile phone service counters where pre-paid SIM cards are available for purchase. For more information on the phone companies at Taoyuan Airport, see the website.

Otherwise, you would need a Taiwanese citizen as a guarantor if you decided to sign up for a student plan later at a phone company. You may check the website for more information.

Each identical card in one Phone Company can only apply for one account. Then, two identical cards are needed during the application for the identity checking.
