Most of the posts on this forum seem to be about traveling FROM Taiwan but I have a question about getting TO Taiwan. Specifically, I’m wondering if most people who booked through travel agencies received assistance in completing their visa forms from their agents. I ask because I’m deliberating between two agencies. The fares they offer are similar but one offers a free review of your visa form. The other agent, who I have booked with for several other trips, seemed to think it was unnecessary for her to review my (visitor) visa info. The visa form DOES seem pretty dead-ahead but I have a slight fear that I will mess something up and delay the process. Can anyone offer any insight on this?
Afterthought: the agent who suggested that it was unnecessary for her to review my visa application also seemed to think there was no problem in stating on my visa application that I would be staying in Taiwan for 10 months. Is this an indication that she knows absolutely nothing about the market? I can’t imagine that it’s a good idea to apply for a visa that will be valid for 60 days at the most and tell the authorities that you will be staying for 10 months!
