I am an Indian citizen wanting to travel to Taiwan later this year. I have an expired and used Schengen D visa. The visa was used by me 4 years ago. Am I eligible for the ROC certificate?

From the Taiwanese Bureau of Consular Affairs:

1.The applicant possesses at least one of the following documents issued by Australia, Canada, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, any of the Schengen countries, the United Kingdom, or the United States:

O Valid resident or permanent resident card or Status

O Valid entry visa (electronic visa must be printed out)

O Resident card or visa that has expired less than 10 years prior to the date of arrival in Taiwan

So yes, you can apply for the authorisation certificate.

  • Although they do possess a Schengen visa, it's expired. I would think that is is now not a valid visa - you couldn't actually use it to enter the Schengen area. From the quote shown, that would imply that they can't apply for the certificate I'd think. – simon at rcl Sep 15 '17 at 16:34

    @simonatrcl Jesus, I bolden the text and still people don't notice. Again, "visa that has expired less than 10 years prior to the date of arrival in Taiwan". – Crazydre Sep 15 '17 at 18:31
