The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) of the Republic of China (Taiwan) launched the e-Visa Program on January 12, 2016. This simplified visa policy saves applicant’s time, traffic hassles and money. The applicant doesn’t need to physically apply in the embassy or consulate.
Travelers of certain nationalities eligible for an e-Visa must obtain an e-code from their host organizations in Taiwan prior to applying for an e-visa. To obtain the e-code, applicants must be invited to attend international conferences or activities in Taiwan – organized, co-organized or sponsored by central government agencies or certain non-governmental organizations.
An e-Visa is an official document issued electronically by ROC overseas missions that allows foreign nationals to enter and travel in Taiwan. When an e-visa application has been approved, applicants are required to present the printout of the e-visa at the immigration checkpoint for verification upon arrival in Taiwan.
