Limited visa services in response to continued spread of COVID-19 pandemic

In accordance with the decision of the decision of the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC),  the Ministry of Foreign Affairs updated regulations concerning the entry of foreign nationals intothe Republic of China (Taiwan).  Beginning March 1, foreign nationals who wish to travel to Taiwan for reasons other than tourism and regular social visits may apply for a special entry permit with an R.O.C. overseas mission by submitting relevant documents and forms.

However, the entry of foreign students will still be based on regulations of the Ministry of Education. (Please note that currently only students in formal degree programs in Taiwan and recipients of the MOFA Taiwan Scholarship attending the Mandarin Language Enrichment Program may enter the country.)
