Hong Kong and Macau passports are allowed a 30 day entry after application of Exit & Entry Permit (入台證) either at the airport after landing or in advance online (港澳居民網路申請入臺證申請書). HK and Macau passports will not be stamped and visitors are required to apply for an Exit & Entry Permit. HK BNO passports are treated the same as HK SAR passports.

Participants from PR China require special entry and exit papers. We advise every group would identify a representative to handle this on behalf of the group. Please contact directly the PG2023 Host.
