💰開戶起始存額The initial deposit for opening an account: NT$1,000
Bank of Taiwan, Wufeng Branch (Recommended)
The location is in Wufeng District, and you can visit during regular business hours on weekdays. However, since it's not a bank cooperative with the school, there will be a service charge of NT$20 deducted for each transaction if the school needs to transfer money to your Bank of Taiwan account.
Taiwan Cooperative Bank, Taichung Branch
This is the school's cooperative bank, located in the central district, a bit far from the campus. After applying for an account, it takes about one week to receive the bank card. If the school transfers money to your account, there is no need to pay service charge.

Reminder: When preparing for the conversion of your residence visa, you will need to provide financial proof of at least NT$120,000 to demonstrate your ability to cover living expenses in Taiwan. You have three options to fulfill this requirement:
If your domestic bank card allows withdrawals from ATMs in Taiwan, please withdraw some money and retain the paper receipt showing the balance (approximately NTD 120,000).
If your domestic account supports international online transfers, you can transfer the funds to your bank account in Taiwan and retain the relevant transfer confirmation.
If your domestic account does not support international online transfers, your grandparents, parents, or siblings can transfer funds to your bank account in Taiwan. However, you will need to provide a paper-based proof of your relationship certified by the Taiwan representative office and retain the relevant remittance receipts.
