It was last January 2016 when Taiwan allowed the issuance of evisa. It is currently applicable to 23 countries, which have increased once in October that year. These numbers will surely expand again in the near future. First, you need to check your eligibility to visit Taiwan. This can be done by using the Visa Checker on iVisa’s website by filling in your nationality as Burkinabe and selecting Taiwan as your destination. You will know in an instant if you qualify for a Taiwan evisa, and if qualified, you will also be provided with clear instructions on how to apply online.
To save Burkinabe from all the bureaucracy involved with acquiring a visa, iVisa created this service. iVisa had proven several times that it can help travelers all over the globe, this alone is already a perfect reason for you to try their services. Burkinabe simply needs to prepare a few things to help them get started. Just like traveling in any other countries, the most important requirement is a valid passport. All travelers need to have a passport, regardless of where they are from. Depending on your circumstance, you may also be required to present the following:

Although the case is different from one person to another, the documents above may be asked by immigration officers. With this, it is highly suggested for Burkinabe to have them ready just in case, to prevent any unpleasant incidents like delays.
Aside from the list provided above, filling an online application is another requirement for Burkinabe in acquiring a visa. There’s no need to worry since the form is pretty easy. iVisa also prides itself of awesome customer service. They are available 24/7, in case that you may need guidance.
The form has three steps that you need to accomplish. The first one is about filling in your personal information, which will only consume five minutes of your time.

Standard processing – this is the most viable option for you if you have lot of time before your departure. This one will have your application processed within 7 business days for the cost of $79.
