Vincentians will from Jan. 12 be eligible to apply for eVisas, free of charge, to visit Taiwan as Taipei continues its efforts to promote people-to-people exchanges between St. Vincent and the Grenadines and the Republic of China (Taiwan).

eVisa applicants must possess a regular passport valid for at least six months as of the date of intended entry into Taiwan.

To obtain an eVisa, applicants must submit relevant personal information online. If necessary, the ROC overseas missions may ask the applicants to submit additional documents within a specific timeframe through email.

The eVisas are only granted for tourism and business purposes, as well as for visiting relatives and attending international conferences or sporting events in Taiwan.

For other purposes, the applicants must submit an application for a suitable type of visa at the ROC overseas missions.

The validity of an eVisa will be three months from the date of issue. The eVisa is a single-entry visa, and the maximum duration of stay in Taiwan is 30 days, and is not eligible for extension.
