How does the Taiwan eVisa work?

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) of the Republic of China (Taiwan) launched the eVisa Program on January 12, 2016. This saves applicants' time, energy, and money. The applicant doesn’t need to physically apply at the embassy or consulate.

Travelers of certain nationalities eligible for an eVisa must obtain an e-code from their host organizations in Taiwan prior to applying for an eVisa. 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.
