See More Details

If you are planning a short trip to Thailand as a Taiwanese citizen, you will require an online electronic visa, also known as a Thailand eVisa, to gain permission to enter Thailand.

This electronic visa system makes it easy to apply for an eVisa to Thailand without having to visit an embassy or consulate.

To receive a Thailand eVisa you must complete the application form. It is a straightforward process and, once it is approved, you can receive it 100% online.

How Does the Thailand eVisa for Taiwanese Nationals Work?

The visa policy for Thailand outlines the rules and regulations regarding every type of visa policy available for Taiwanese nationals visiting the country.

The Thailand eVisa meant for Taiwan passport holders has the following features:

  • It is a single-entry visa. This means Taiwanese visitors can only use it to enter and leave the country once
  • It allows stays of up to 15 consecutive days. This electronic visa cannot be extended
  • It is a multiple-purpose visa. In other words, Taiwanese travelers can apply for it if they are visiting for business purposes, academic reasons, leisure, transit, sports, attending conventions, and several other reasons

Once it is granted, citizens of Taiwan have 30 days to enter the country before the eVisa becomes invalid.

Taiwanese passport holders in possession of a Thailand eVisa will be sent an electronic online visa that authorizes entry to Thailand.

If you wish to stay in the country for more than 15 days, you must visit your nearest Thai consulate or embassy to find out about other types of visas available.

Documents Required for a Thailand eVisa for Taiwanese Citizens

  • The Taiwanese passport’s biographical page and cover page in digital format
  • A credit or debit card with sufficient funds to pay the Thailand eVisa processing fee
  • An email address. This is due to the fact the approved Thailand eVisa will be emailed to this address in the form of a PDF attachment. Once you have received it you are required to print out the eVisa and bring it with you to Thailand.
  • Airline tickets as evidence of your arrival and departure details. These can be an image or copy.

You will also be asked questions regarding personal details and your passport, including your passport number, issue date and expiry date, and contact information.

Additionally, you will be asked to provide information regarding your travel details, including providing evidence of accommodation bookings.

Special requirements when traveling to Thailand from Taiwan

Taiwanese citizens must have special consideration in the following cases:

  • Dual nationality. Travelers of Taiwan who hold more than a nationality must ensure that they travel with the correct passport (the same used during the application process)
  • Taiwanese children. When traveling to Thailand with underage visitors, parents and/or legal guardians must ensure they also have an approved Thailand eVisa, regardless of whether they are listed on a parent or guardian’s passport or if they have their own passport.

If you are a Taiwanese passport holder planning to visit Thailand you should check the visa requirements for Taiwanese citizens before filling in your application form.
