Taiwan Visa Requirements for Medical Tourists

In recent years, Taiwan has emerged as a hotspot for medical tourism. With cutting-edge technology and well-trained medical professionals, the country attracts medical tourists from a number of Asian countries. The bulk of the Taiwan medical industry is made up of Chinese nationals in search of excellent medical treatments at the affordable rates. Recently, Taiwan has even launched an e-visa portal for Chinese medical tourists looking to secure Taiwan visas. 

The Government of Taiwan requires all medical tourists to apply for visas prior to their departure from their home countries. Medical tourists must visit the Taiwan Consulate in their respective countries in order to file for a visa for medical purposes. On many occasions, individuals may also be required to undertake an interview at the overseas consulate. Medical Tourists can receive a medical visa granting a six-month stay by providing appropriate medical documentation.

There are a number of documents that individuals will need to provide in order to ensure the highest probability of securing a Taiwan medical visa. Among these is a payment plan for the medical treatment being undertaken in the country of Taiwan that has been verified and consented by a Taiwan-based, licensed medical institution. Individuals will also need to provide other documentation regarding their diagnosis and any other relevant correspondence with the medical institution of their choice.
