  • Nationals from many countries are eligible for visa exemptions or landing visas. Please see the Visa Application for more information.
  • If you do need a visa, and have been invited to attend 4WCWS, you can apply through us for an eVisa. Foreign nationals (regardless of their nationality) who have been invited to attend international conferences, sports events, trade fairs or other activities in Taiwan—organized, co-organized, or sponsored by central government agencies or certain nongovernmental organizations—are eligible for an eVisa.
  • An eVisa is an official document issued electronically by ROC overseas missions that allows foreign nationals to enter and travel in Taiwan. An eVisa applicant’s passport must be an ordinary, official, or diplomatic passport with remaining validity of at least six months. Emergency, temporary, and other informal passports or travel documents cannot be used to apply for an eVisa.
  • The validity of an eVisa is three months starting from the issue date. The eVisa is a single-entry visa, and the maximum duration of stay in Taiwan is 30 days, which cannot be extended.
