Taiwan visitors enter using the Taiwan Taoyuan international airport, though they face immigration procedures. But, the guards are very efficient.

The main airport in Taiwan is the Taiwan Taoyuan international airport. This is located in Dayuan and was earlier known as Chiang Kai shek and is yet recognized at CKS airport.

The other Taiwan international airports are Cing Cyuan Gang and Siaogang Airport. The Taiwan airports handle traffic from all the countries, but majority of the international flights go and come to the Siagong airport and hence occasionally they offer cheap flights to Taiwan.

The airport is connected by terminals and there are booths for contacting the terminals that are open and can also assist in hotel bookings, bus information and also in acquiring youth travel card.
