Foreign Missions in Taiwan

Below is a list of diplomatic missions set up by foreign governments in Taiwan, in English alphabetical order of country name by region.

These offices are usually staffed by professional diplomats without the official diplomatic titles. Not all offices listed below have the authority to grant entry visa into their respective countries or offer consular services.
