Taiwan’s admittance to the ESTA program still faces difficulties

Visa Bureau is not affiliated with the Australian Government but is an independent UK company. Australian visas are available from the Australian Government at a lower cost or for free when you apply directly. Our comprehensive visa and immigration services include immigration advice from registered migration agents, a 100% success rate, document checking and expedited visa processing.

Legal issues still need to be resolved before Washington can grant US visa-waiver privileges for Taiwanese nationals, the American Institute in Taiwan said. The announcement refutes the Liberty Times report that Taiwan will get the thumbs-up by June.

ESTA

There are still processes to complete before Taiwan nationals can visit the US with an ESTA.

A high-level US representative is visiting Taiwan this week to hammer out the details of a US-Taiwan information-sharing agreement on counter-terrorism – an agreement that will push Taiwan one step closer to inclusion in the US Visa Waiver program. Nationals of countries admitted to the US Visa Waiver program are able to visit the US using the online ESTA system, rather than the more lengthy US Visa application process which requires a visit to a US Embassy.

American Institute in Taiwan spokesman Chris Kavanaugh said there are a number of legal requirements that must be discussed and met before a country can be admitted to the visa waiver program.
