Please Note: Taiwanese compatriot passports and official/diplomatic passports are not acceptable travel documents for travel to Australia. Taiwanese compatriot passports do not show the Personal Identity Number in the bio-data page of the passport.
However, if Taiwanese compatriot passport holders have evidence of a right of re-entry to the country of origin or a third country they can use their compatriot passports to travel to Australia.
If you hold a Taiwanese compatriot passport and have evidence of a right of re-entry to the country of origin or to a third country, you need to apply for a Visitor visa (subclass 600). See: www.homeaffairs.gov.au/Trav/Visa-1/600- or the AVAC website above.
