Free online Taiwan visa service for Hong Kong and Macau visitors

Taiwan authorities have simplified visa application procedures for Hong Kong and Macau citizens.

There is no longer a charge for the online visa service. Previously, visitors filled up the application form online and paid a HK$200 (US$25) fee upon arrival. Under the new system, travellers complete the application online and wait for the confirmation to be sent. Once received, this is printed out and shown to the immigration officer in Taiwan.

There is still the option of applying for visas upon arrival, which cost HK$200 (US$26) or, alternatively, going to the nearest Taiwan representative office. Visas have also been extended and are valid for multiple entries over three months, whereas previously, Hong Kong and Macau people could only enter twice over the 90-day validity period.

For application forms and further details, visit www.immigration.gov.tw

Hi GARYHCNG,

You may go to https://nas.immigration.gov.tw/hkvisa/FT010100.do?action=formload and apply for the visa online. Print it out and bring it with you for passport control.

Happy travels!

Reggie

I am a Hong Kong resident and had applied online and received an entry permit . The permit document states that one entry is allowed within three months. But in another of your websites it says " Visas have been extended and are valid for multiple entries over three months". Which is right.?
I need to be in and out of Taipei twice over the next thirty days. Should I and am I allowed to apply for another permit before I have used the first one?
