    Explanation of the style and design of R.O.C. (Taiwan) visas:

    A. Types of visa: R.O.C. visas are divided into four categories according to the purpose of entry and status of the applicants:

    B. Visitor Visas: Short-term visas, with a duration of stay of less than 180 days.

    C. Resident Visas: Long-term visas, with a duration of stay of over 180 days.

    D. Diplomatic Visas.

    E. Courtesy Visas.

    F. Limitations on Entry:

    This refer to means the time limit set for visa holders. For instance, "valid until" (or enter before) April 8, 1999” means the visa is not valid after April 8, 1999 and should not, therefore, be used after that date.

    G. Duration of Stay:

    The duration a foreign national is allowed to stay in the R.O.C. after the he/she uses the visa is calculated from 12: 00 a .m. of the day following entry into the country.

    1. Duration of stay usually can be divided into 14-day, 30-day or 60-day categories. If a foreign national wishes to extend his/her duration of stay in the R.O.C, and he/she holds a 60-day visa with no restrictions, he/his should check and bring related documents to apply for an extension at the local service center of National Immigration Agency before the duration of stay expires.

    2. Resident visas without additional ed duration of stay: Applicants should apply for an Alien Resident Certification (A.R.C.) at he local service center of National Immigration Agency within 15 days of entry or of being issued a resident visa. The duration of stay should be in accordance with the time stated on down in the Alien Resident Certificate hold by the foreign national . Should a foreign national holding an A.R.C.A wish to exit and re-enter the country within the period of validity, he/she should apply for a re-entry permit along with the an A.R.C.

    3. Entries: Divided into two groups: single and multiple.

    4. Visa numbers: Visitors should write their visa fill in the numbers in this section of the E/D card.

    5. Remarks: This refers to the code for the purpose of the applicants travel to the R.O.C. or the status of the visa applicant. A foreign national holding an A.R.C. should engage only in those activities which are in accordance with the permitted purpose of his/her visit. (List of Visa Remark Section Code)

    I believe everyone is required to have a Visa for any international travel anywhere. A Visa usually takes anywhere from about 6 to 8 weeks to receive. It can take longer if there are additional issues to be resolved (information about oneself; proof of your identity, criminal record; if you have one & I am not saying that you do, rather the country you're going to is friend or foe to the US, etc).

    Source(s): From having applied for a Visa a couple of times some years back for a trip to Europe.
