Court Reporting in Taiwan
With teams living in Taiwan, and throughout Asia, we regularly cover depositions, arbitrations, and other services in Taipei, Hsinchu, Kaohsiung, and Taitung. Depositions in Taiwan are straightforward and do not require government involvement. As the only court reporting agency in Taiwan with local court reporters and videographers, we are uniquely qualified to handle your Taiwan deposition. You will not need to worry about extra travel expenses or charges for Taiwanese visas.
In 2012 Planet Depos acquired American Realtime Court Reporters to expand our coverage in Asia, providing our clients with even more local court reporters throughout Asia. We are a registered company in Taiwan (Planet Depos Asia, LLC).
Most attorneys prefer the convenience of conducting depositions at a conference room in their hotel in Taipei. For those that prefer an alternative location, we are pleased to offer the following conference room location:
Planet Depos often covers depositions outside the City of Taipei. Contact us for assistance with hotels and conference rooms across Taiwan.
Another favorite location for U.S. depositions is Hsinchu, known for its annual Lantern Festival. There are not as many hotels in Hsinchu as there are in Taipei, so it is a good idea to plan ahead.
Since there is no airport in Hsinchu, the best mode of transportation is from Taipei by the Taiwan High Speed Rail (THSR), which has a train that runs every 20 minutes, and it usually takes about 30 minutes one way from Taipei to Hsinchu. For more information and schedules, visit THSR.

Prior permission is not required for depositions in Taiwan:
- Permission from the government is not required for depositions of willing witnesses in Taiwan.
- Depositions can be taken at any location.
- Make sure to note any specific language and/or dialect for the interpreter.
Court reporters are not authorized to administer the oath in Taiwan, so the oath will need to be stipulated on the record. Another option would be to apply to the court for a Commission to Administer Oaths.
