Automatic 30-day extension for foreigners entering Taiwan on or before March 21 with visa waiver, visitor visa, or landing visa

Continuing the discussion from Visa Free Ways to extend stay:

So, if your visa is valid on March 21, automatic 30 day extension.


My 90 days tourist visa expires end of May. I have been informed by Southern immigration office in Kaohsiung that there is an automatic 60 added to this visa for which no action need be taken. However as a Canadian passport holder I have the option of applying for a 90 day extension with some supporting documents. The question is if I were to take advantage of the extra 60 days granted to all and at the end of that period to apply for the formal 90 days extension, would that be possible or am I taking advantage and can only do one or the other?

You can stay until the end of August with the automatic 90-day extension (no need to apply). See the FAQ at the bottom of this page:
