An eVisa is an official document issued electronically by ROC overseas missions that allows foreign nationals to enter and travel in Taiwan. An eVisa is an alternative to a paper-based visa issued by ROC overseas missions. To obtain an eVisa, applicants must submit relevant personal information and pay the required fee by credit card (MasterCard or Visa). The eVisa will be issued after the submitted information has been assessed and found to meet relevant criteria. When an eVisa application has been approved, the visa issuance system of the Bureau of Consular Affairs (BOCA) of the ROC Ministry of Foreign Affairs will automatically send a notice to the applicant’s designated email account containing a webpage link to download and print the eVisa. You are required to present this eVisa at the immigration checkpoint for verification by the National Immigration Agency upon your arrival in Taiwan. In line with existing procedures concerning paper visas, immigration officers at ports of entry in Taiwan have the right to deny entry to eVisa holders without providing further explanation.
