Taiwan Joins U.S. Visa Waiver Program
October 3, 2012
Taiwan became the newest addition to the U.S. Visa Waiver Program on Tuesday, making travel to the United States simpler for thousands of Taiwan passport holders. The VWP permits visa-free travel for eligible travelers visiting the U.S. for 90 days or fewer for business or tourism.
Like travelers from the other 36 visa-waiver countries, eligible Taiwan passport holders will be required to apply for advanced authorization through the Electronic System for Travel Authorization. Those with an approved ESTA will be able to visit the United States without visas as of Nov. 1, 2012.
