  • What is a Visa?
A visa is an authorized document allowing a person to enter a country or territory. It is subject to immigration laws and often appears on a persons passport, though it can be found as a individual document.

Not all countries require a visa, however it is always recommend that you first check. For countries that do require a visa you will be expected to abide by the laws and terms of the document. These may include the period of stay, whether an individual may work while in the country and whether they can leave and return without having to re-apply.

  • What does a Visa allow you to do?
A visa doesn't give a person any guarantee that their entry to the country is permitted, and it can be revoked by immigration officials at any time. Furthermore a visitor to a country may also have to pass both security and in some cases health checks, before being allowed entry.

  • Visitors to Taiwan
For many visitors no visa is required to enter Taiwan, granted you stay less than 30 days (90 days for most Europeans).

Citizens from the Philippines, India, Thailand, Vietnam, and Indonesia are not required to have a Taiwanese visa if they are permanent residents in the USA, Australia, Canada, or the European Union. However they maybe required to apply for one if this is not the case.

  • How to apply
To apply for a visitor visa you must visit a Taiwanese consulate with a valid passport (with at least 6 months remaining before it expires), two passport photos, and a completed and signed visa application form. You may also be asked to bring bank statements and proof of return ticket or journey.

A visitors visa for Taiwan is usually valid for 60 days, however it can be extended a further two times, up 180 days.
