In December 2023, Google will update the regional restrictions under the Political content policy to include restrictions in Taiwan.

In Taiwan, the following will be prohibited on Google platforms:

Not allowed Ads featuring a political party, current elected office holder or candidate for the elected office of President, Vice President, member of the Legislative Yuan, a municipal councillor, county (city) councillor, representatives of township congresses, representatives of mountain indigenous districts congresses, governors of municipalities (municipal mayors), governors of counties (cities) and chiefs of townships (cities), chiefs of indigenous districts and chiefs of villages (burghs).

Advertisers’ accounts that have already completed verification for Taiwan election ads will be converted to be a part of the Google advertiser verification programme. Taiwan election ads previously shown in the Transparency Centre will remain publicly accessible.
