Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What documents Panamanian need?
Services like iVisa have been made to spare Panamanian of all the bureaucracy involved in obtaining a visa. iVisa proved several times that it can help travelers all over the world, and there is no reason you should not try its services as well. However, Panamanian needs to produce a few things to help them get started. The most important requirement is a valid passport. All travelers, no matter where they are from, need to have a passport. At the same time, depending on the case, you may also be required to present the following:
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 picture should be a recent one.
Immigration officers may or may not request for the things on the list above. It is a case-by-case kind of situation. However, to prevent any unpleasant situations, it is highly suggested for Panamanian to have them on you just in case.
