The following is a list of administrative divisions of the Republic of China (Taiwan), including 6 special municipalities and 2 nominal provinces as the de jure first-level administrative divisions. 11 counties and 3 cities were nominally under the jurisdiction of the Taiwan Province, and 2 additional counties being part of the ROC's Fujian Province.

With provinces non-functional in practice, Taiwan is divided into 22 subnational divisions, among which counties and cities are the de facto principle constituent divisions,[1] along with special municipalities, directly under the Central Government. Each with a local government led by an elected head and a local council.[2]
