Nonimmigrant visas are for international travelers, including citizens of other countries, coming to the U.S. temporarily. This visa allows you to travel to a U.S. port-of-entry and request permission of the Department of Homeland Security immigration inspector to enter the United States. A visa does not guarantee entry into the United States.
All applications for nonimmigrant visas should be submitted at our Taipei office. Our Kaohsiung branch office does not accept nonimmigrant visa applications.

Taiwan entered the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) in November 2012. Under the VWP, eligible Taiwan passport holders are able to travel to the United States for tourism or business for stays of 90 days or less without obtaining a visa.
