The specific requirements for obtaining a visa depend on the citizenship of the applicant and the country where the application is made. For passport holders for non-exempt countries, including India, a visa is required. The application process is straightforward. It is recommended to first contact a visa courier service in the country you are living to help with the process. The visa company agent or website will guide you through the application process. You will complete all the paperwork, then mail your passport, photo, and paperwork to the company who will check your application and submit the application on your behalf. When the visa is obtained, the visa company will mail it back to you. The visa company can also answer any questions you may have regarding the application process, either by phone or email.
Indian passport holders with valid visa or resident permit to USA/Canada/Schengen Countries/ UK/ Australia don't need a separate visa for Taiwan. They can apply for online travel authorization. More information can be found on the Bureau of Consular Affairs website.
