Get up to speed about the region

Taiwan is a leaf-shaped island straddling the Tropic of Cancer about 200 kilometres (120 miles) off the eastern coast of mainland China. Named the "Beautiful Island" (Ilha Formosa) by Portuguese merchants, the island has a long history as a centre of trade in the region.

Taiwan's lively and colourful culture celebrates the interesting juxtaposition of the traditional and the modern. Outstanding examples of Chinese heritage co-exist with the most recent innovations in technology.

  • A passport valid for at least six months
  • A completed application form with two photos
  • An outbound airline ticket or verifiable proof of purchase
  • Documents verifying the purpose of their visit.
