Visa Overstay

Overstaying visas in Taiwan leads to fines. Additionally, it often leads to black marks in your passport, meaning that return to Taiwan is not allowed for a set period of time. Obviously, overstaying is not a good idea.

Extending some visas is an option, but it is not for all visas. The extension must be granted prior to overstaying.

There are a few exceptions to the overstay rule, including Force Majeur, major injury and natural disaster.

The most common reason visitors overstay is due to miscalculating dates. For example, a 60 day visa is NOT the same as two months - some months have 31 days, and February sometimes has 28.
