How to travel to India from Taiwan?

After submitting your application, you should have your approved India e-Visa for Taiwanese nationals in your email inbox within 72 hours. However, because certain applications may take longer to complete, it is best to submit an online form well in advance of your desired arrival date.

You must then print a copy of the approved visa to show to immigration officials at the Indian border. To enter the nation, you must also produce the same passport you used to fill out the E-visa form.

To travel to India from Taiwan, you will need to prepare some documents:

1. Apply for an Indian visa. Taiwanese nationals can apply for an e-Visa, which can be obtained online. You must have a valid passport with at least six months validity from the date of entry in India, as well as a return or onward trip ticket.

2. Book your flights. There are direct flights from Taipei Taoyuan International Airport (TPE) to several major cities in India, including Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai. Flight time is approximately 7 hours.

3. Pack your bags. Pack clothing suited for the Indian environment, which can be hot and humid. Sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses are also recommended. Packing a few snacks and beverages is also a smart idea, as food and beverage options on flights to India might be restricted.

When you arrive in India, you must clear immigration and customs. Make sure you have your passport, visa, and return ticket on hand to show the immigration officer. You may also be required to provide evidence of finances.

You can collect your bags and go to your hotel or other destination once you have cleared immigration and customs.

Here are some additional tips for traveling to India from Taiwan:

  • Exchange your Taiwanese dollars for Indian rupees before you travel. You can exchange currency in India at banks, currency exchange offices and airports. 
  • Be prepared for culture shock. India is a very different country than Taiwan, so it is important to keep an open mind and respect the Indian culture.
  • Dress appropriately. Indians dress simply so it is best to avoid revealing clothing.
  • Be aware of your surroundings. India may be a crowded and hectic environment, so be alert to your surroundings and keep your possessions with you at all times.
  • Be prepared to haggle. Haggling is common in India, so be prepared to haggle when shopping.
  • Learn some basic Hindi language. This will help you communicate with locals and travel more easily.
