Last January 2016, Taiwan has permitted the issuance of evisa for the citizens of 23 countries. The list of nationals who have this privilege increased once in October that year, and it will probably expand again. For now, you should check your qualification if you wish to visit Taiwan. To do that, you can use the Visa Checker on iVisa’s website. Insert your nationality as Kuwaiti; click on Taiwan as your destination. You will quickly know if you qualify for a Taiwan evisa or not. Upon qualification, you will also get clear instructions on how to apply online.
What documents Kuwaiti need?
iVisa made this service to save Kuwaiti from all the bureaucracy involved in acquiring a visa. iVisa had shown several times that it can help travelers all over the globe, so that is a good reason that you should try its services as well. Kuwaiti simply needs to produce a few things to help them get started. Off course, the most important requirement is a valid passport. All travelers, regardless of where they are from, need to have a passport. At the same time, you may also be required to present the following depending on the case:
Proof of accommodation – you may be asked to provide a hotel confirmation or a letter from a host in Taiwan.
Invitation letter – if you go to Taiwan for business purposes, you may have received an invitation letter, but that is not always applicable.
Bank statement – many countries will ask for proof that you can provide for yourself while in the country, and Taiwan is one of them.

Copies of your passport’s main page
Digital passport sized photo
The things listed above may or may not be requested by immigration officers. It is a case to case basis but it is highly suggested for Kuwaiti to have them on you just in case. This is to prevent any unpleasant situations.
Taiwan evisa – the application form
Another requirement for Kuwaiti in obtaining a visa is to fill in an online application. Even so, the form is easy to grasp. In the event of you needing any guidance, iVisa provides an excellent customer support that is available 24/7.
You need to complete the form that has three steps. The first one will ask you to fill in your basic information. That is an easy part so it should take you only five minutes. Also, it is at this point when Kuwaiti needs to select whether they want a single or double entry, and the processing time. The former does not incur extra fees, but the latter will affect the cost of your Taiwan visa. iVisa provides you three choices:
Standard processing – if you have lot of time before your departure, then this is the most viable option for you. This one will have your application processed within 7 business days. As for the cost, you will be charged $79.
Rush processing – this option will lessen the waiting period a bit. Your Taiwan evisa will be in your e-mail inbox within 5 business days, but it costs a bit more than the previous option. You will be charged $109.
Super Rush processing – if you have an emergency and need your visa as quickly as possible, then this is the best option you have. iVisa will send you your Taiwan evisa in just 3 business days. However, as you may expect, this option is more expensive. It costs $129.
The second stage of the application will ask you to review on what you input step one. After that you can make the payment using a credit or a debit card. Also, if you have a PayPal account, iVisa accepts that too.
Lastly, Kuwaiti may be required to upload additional documents but it is on a case-by-case basis. You may be asked more or fewer documents than other people, depending on your circumstance. As an example, Kuwaiti traveling with minors will be required more documents than people going alone.
As you can see, it is not complicated to apply online. The document you receive is valid for 90 days, and it will enable you a 30-day stay in Taiwan. As for the entries, Kuwaiti can enter the country once or twice, depending on your choice you made on the application.
