  Vacuum system for the 3 GeV Taiwan Photon Source (TPS) has been started the construction since 2010. The critical components such as the bellows and gate valves with rf-contact shielding, pulsed magnet kicker ceramic chambers, BPM, crotch absorbers, etc. have been manufactured and tested. Aluminum alloy (Al-) vacuum chambers for the arc-cells have been machined and undergoing the in-house welding. Mass production of the vacuum equipments including the ion gauges, ion pumps, NEG pumps, and gate valves, has been contracted out and partially delivering following the schedule of the cell assembling. Each cell, contains two short Al-straight chambers and two Al-bending chambers, has been started the assembling and on-site welding on the pre-aligned girders in clean room forming an one-piece vacuum vessel about 14 m in length following by the vacuum baking to the ultra-high vacuum. The conceptual design of the vacuum systems for the long straight sections, the concentric booster, and the transport lines, will be addressed. The progress of prototyping development and the status of construction for the TPS vacuum system will be described in this paper.
