I am an Indian citizen who may travel to Taiwan in a couple of months. I have been trying to figure out travel advisories for Taiwan. Now from what little info I have been able to gather, it seems Taiwan has very few diplomatic allies and hence finding travel advisories about Taiwan seems to be a bit difficult. I am looking to do some risk assessment for myself, something like Why do travel advisories vary so much between countries? so its easier to figure out how safe or unsafe the country is.

One of the issues is of course it has hurricanes and earthquake-prone country as it's near/on the faults but that's nature. Am thinking more about people and places etc.

  • What is your question?

    Why would the number of diplomatic allies a country has make any difference to the availability of travel advisories for that country?

  • it makes a difference in the sense of getting advise from different countries. Risk assessment is better if you have more than one source.

  • Taiwan is fine. Look out for earthquakes. Then proceed as if you're in any other "safe" country.

Even though many countries don’t have official diplomatic relations with Taiwan (to avoid issues with the PRC), many do publish advisories nonetheless.

A few examples:

Others like India’s MEA apparently only publish advisories when they feel there’s a specific issue.

Others still may include Taiwan in advisories for China if they really want to please the PRC.

Generally, Taiwan is considered a safe place. As always, exercice proper caution as you would in any other “safe” country.


Taiwan is a safe country, and even in the night, the security is also good in nearly every city. You can visit Taiwan without any doubts.
