What visa team can do for you?
1. Delegate visa application consultation
Delegates may need to go for visa in person or with one representative; we can provide some information and solve your problems.
2. Government negotiation
Many visa issues are related to national security, so the regulations are sometimes inflexible. Visa team will try to negotiate with the government if you encounter difficulties when applying. (The rules in visa application guideline book is provided by Ministry of Foreign Affairs, R.O.C, so sometimes itâ€™s hard to break the rule even we want to help delegate.)
3. Invitation Letter and confirmation provider
Every delegate will receive their invitation letter and confirmation after AI and MCP approval from Visa team. We also still deal with emergency cases like delegates who need pre-approval for visa application due to his/her schedule for being a foreign MC.
[Visa Scan Upload]
Many Delegates may have already got their visa, so we need every delegate do us a favor! If you have acquired your visa, please upload the scan of it to the official website Final Collection Form (http://goo.gl/vYJBp6) for us to make sure you can get into Taiwan.

If I find some mistakes (such as the embassy is not the one I wanted to apply for, name misspelt, etc.) in my visa online application form, but I have already printed out and provided the barcode on IC registration system, what should I do, should I rewrite it?
Yes! You have to refill your visa application form and print the newest one for your visa application. You also have to contact IC CC team by email and provide us your new bar code and inform us which space you had correct. As for the old application form, you can ignore it, that won’t be a problem.
