3. Go direct to the Taipei Economic and cultural office in philippines
REQUIREMENTS FOR VISA APPLICATION:
- Online visa application form. Printed on A4sized paper.
- Passport 6 months valid.
- 2pcs of passport sized photo with white background.
- Original NSO Birth Certificate of the applicant
- Bank Certificate
- Certificate of employment if the applicant is employed.

Its easy to get visa when you meet the requirement for the visa you are applying but sometimes even you get visa there’s still possible na di ka palabasin sa immigration ng Pinas especially sa mga first time traveller or unemployed na mag tatravel. You have to prove kasi in immigration that you are capable to travel and you have enough money for your travel expenses. One more thing you have to prove them na babalik ka and no hidden agenda’s tulad ng illegaly work lalo na sa tourist visa.
I have some tip ako for that to make sure na makakapag travel ka to Taiwan without worries. So to continue, first ipasa mo sa kanila all the requirements na kailangan like bank certificate, hotel accommodation, travel certificate like E-visa or ROC travel certificate, itinerary ticket with your atleast 6months valid passport and boarding pass. Dont wait them na iask pa nila sayo yung mga documents na need, ipasa mo na ng sabay sabay, just to let them not to ask a lot of things. But i think for first timer talaga is madaming follow up question, but don’t worry just be honest on what will you declare and there will be no problem.
Second when they ask you a question siguraduhin mo na totoo lahat ng sagot mo and dont change statements kasi they will feel suspicious about your statement. I have a friend na hindi nakalagpas sa immigration dito sa Pinas, the immigration staff ask her what is she going to do in Taiwan, at first she declared that she will travel alone and then she suddenly change statement that she will meet his bf in Taiwan, so kahit complete requirement siya, hindi parin siya binigyan ng stamp ng immigration. I feel sorry for her but that would be a lesson not only for her but to all travellers. Kaya na-i-share ko itong pangyayari about my friend.
And last but not the least bring cash or if you have credit card or atm na open for international dalhin mo na din pero I advice na much better to bring cash like 20k up to prove na kaya mong ihandle ang expenses mo for your travel fees. So that’s all po para sa mga first time traveller and unemployed na mag ta-travel. Sa mga marami ng stamp ng ibang countries ang passport no worries na kasi immigration dont ask that much.
