(Taiwan) nationals and Ukrainian Alien Resident Certificate (ARC) holders residing in Taiwan will be eligible to apply for the special entry permit (visa) for the purpose of visiting relatives for Taiwan to visit relatives. Ukrainian relatives may submit such an application at R.O.C. (Taiwan) overseas missions by presenting a valid Ukrainian passport and proof of relationship to R.O.C.
