I’m often thrilled when I don’t go through so much hassle in applying for a visa. As a a Philippine passport holder, it’s always a pain in the butt to apply for a visa to many countries I want to visit.
Except in the case of Taiwan.
The Taiwanese government allows nationals from the Philippines, India, Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam who holds a valid resident/visitor visa from the US, Canada, Japan, UK, Australia, New Zealand and Schengen Agreement countries to obtain a visa or a travel certificate online without going to any consulate. This particular visa can also be single entry granted it hasn’t been used yet to enter the country it was issued for and it hasn’t expired.
