I want to apply for a visit visa for Taiwan. I am an Indian passport holder with ECR (Emigration check required Category). Do I need to submit any extra documents?

Does a Passport with ECR category create any problem while leaving India and entering Taiwan for visit purpose? I will stay in Taiwan for 1 month.

    ECR is only if you are traveling for work to the Middle East. Oct 4, 2017 at 5:33

First, ECR/ECNR is only relevant for Indian authorities (you require clearance from them), not for foreign authorities.

Second, as stated by Burhan Khalid, it is only relevant if you travel for employment, and only to 17 specific countries (not just Middle East). Taiwan is not in this list, and you're only applying for a visit.

Indian immigration would need to see your roundtrip ticket to Taiwan.
