Canadian visa requirements lifted for Taiwan Tourists

Tourists from Taiwan no longer face Canadian Visa Requirements

The Canadian government announced on Tuesday that visitors from the country of Taiwan will no longer need a visitor visa to come to Canada. The Canadian visa requirements were lifted after a regular review of immigration statistics from Taiwan.

Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Minister Jason Kenney said in a press release that, “Canada regularly reviews its visa requirements and has determined that Taiwan meets the criteria for a visa exemption.”

Canada and Taiwan have a strong people-to-people bond as well as significant trade and investment between the two countries. Last year over 50,000 people visited Canada from Taiwan, and Canada has a Taiwanese community of over 150,000 people who are either from Taiwan or of Taiwanese descent.

Canadian visa requirements: Criteria

The review by the Canadian government found that the visa approval rate for people from Taiwan was high with an extremely low number of refugee claims – only 23 in the last two years.

According to Citizenship and Immigration Canada, whether a country has Canadian visa requirements is based on several factors, including: asylum rates, removal cooperation, immigration violation statistics and the integrity of travel documents
