Regarding Restriction of number of Visa Assistance in Taipei

9th December 2016

To, All Members,

Sub: Regarding Restriction of number of Visa Assistance in Taipei
 
We were given to understand that Taipei Visa Agency in Taiwan i.e. India Taipei Association is accepting only 20 applications for visa per day and it is difficult to get visa for large groups. A clarification as received from Ministry of Tourism, Govt. of India and India Taipei Association is placed below, which is self- explanatory. According to the clarification, there is no such restriction and any number of Visa can be applied. 
 
You may like to inform your FTOs in Taiwan accordingly. 

With regards, 

Sincerely, 

Pronab Sarkar
President

Refer your query below. ITA has been issuing 6 months multiple entry tourist visa to all applicants from Taiwan area to facilitate tourism. The visas are normally dispatched the very next day of application. Travelers from Taiwan area are also utilizing e-TV facility from Aug 2015.
 
ITA has NO, I repeat No limit on the number of visa applications accepted from a particular agent per day. 
 
You may kindly convey to interested agents that we look forward for more Tourists from Taiwan to visit India and are always prepared to facilitate all their queries and visas.
 
Thank you.
