Attention to ROC Visa Applicants: New Practice of ROC Visa Application for Foreign Visitors

In order to enhance the efficiency of processing visa applications, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) of the Republic of China (Taiwan) will be revising its visa application form and procedures.

From the 1st of March 2012, all visa applicants will need to first complete and submit an online application form which can be accessed through the following website:
https://visawebapp.boca.gov.tw
The form should then be printed out and attached with other required documents to be lodged to MOFA or ROC’s overseas missions.
This practice is currently on a trial basis only. During the trial period, application forms filled out either online or offline will both be accepted.

Formal enforcement date will be publicized before the trial period concludes.
