In a promising development for Indian travellers, Taiwan is actively considering the implementation of visa-on-arrival (VoA) for Indian citizens. This potential move comes amidst efforts to enhance bilateral relations and promote Taiwan as a top destination for Indian tourists. Deputy Foreign Minister of Taiwan, Tien Chung-kwang expressed this intention, highlighting India's significant outbound travel and the potential benefits of easing visa procedures.

Currently, Indians require a visa application process before visiting Taiwan. If the visa-on-arrival system is implemented, it would simplify entry procedures, potentially leading to a surge in Indian tourists eager to explore the island nation's captivating blend of natural beauty, cultural richness, and technological prowess.

While the official announcement is pending, here's a glimpse into what awaits Indian visitors in Taiwan:
