Abstract

This research aims to investigate what factors affect Taiwanese immigrants when they decide whether to come to, stay in or leave Ireland. During this study, 48 detailed interviews was conducted, respondents were aged between 21 and 60, all of them currently work or had experience living in Ireland. The results of the study show that the main motivation to come to Ireland is relatively higher salary and the main motivation to stay are better working conditions. Our study also shows that many Taiwanese migrants are unsatisfied with safety in Irish cities, but most leave only because they were not able to extend their working visa.

In our study, we also give advice to Irish employers how they can better understand the needs of Taiwanese nationals and more successfully retain talents from Taiwan.
