Documents Required for Taiwan

As per guidelines from the U.S. Department of State, the primary requirements for E Visa applications include:

  • Birth certificate of the applicant.

  • If relevant, documents such as marriage, divorce, or death certificates regarding any current or prior relationships.

  • Proof of Taiwanese nationality.

  • Documents showing the nature of trade between the US and Taiwan or proving that the applicant is making a notable investment in a U.S. business. This might include trade invoices, financial statements, or bank documents.

  • A document or letter detailing the purpose of the visit and the duration of the intended stay in the US.


Other specific documents may be required by the U.S. Embassy in Taiwan based on specific cases.


Translator Qualifications

Based on the regulations provided by the U.S. Department of State, while there is no explicit mandate about the certification of the translator, the individual must be proficient enough to provide an accurate translation from the source language (Mandarin or other languages spoken in Taiwan) to English. The translation should come with a signed statement from the translator confirming the accuracy and completeness of the translation, and their ability to translate from the original language to English.

Certification Requirements

As per the U.S. Department of State, translations must be accompanied by a statement from the translator or the translation service. This statement should vouch for their proficiency in both the source language and English and affirm the authenticity of the translation. Given international conventions, Taiwanese documents might require an apostille or other forms of authentication for use in the U.S., but Taiwan is not a signatory to the Hague Apostille Convention, so other methods of authentication may be needed.
