Taiwan Swamp Corps Team

In May of 2018, two people from Taiwan, Kevin and Vincent, came to the Cambodia Swamp Camp by invitation of Sovann Seng, the leader of the Phnom Penh Church of Christ. They came with a dream to have camps for kids not only in Taiwan but in mainland China; they left with that dream in tact. Thus came the invitation which we received from Kevin, the Taipei church leader. This trip proved to be a key milestone in reaching children all over this vast and populous area of the world, as campers from Hong Kong and Mainland China joined Taiwanese campers. Join us for Year 2 for a trip of a lifetime and help us impact many lives.

Key Information:

Open all Close all
  • Do I Need a Visa?
    As a U.S. passport holder, you will be allowed to enter Taiwan without a visa for up to ninety days if your passport is valid for more than 90 days. If your passport has less than 90 days of validity remaining, you will be able to enter Taiwan for a time equal to the expiration date of your passport.

    Currently, no visa required for tourists staying less that 90 days. Click here for more information.
  • Are Vaccinations Needed?
    Check the following two sources: Passport Health or CDC Health Information for Travelers to Taiwan.

    Find the nearest Travel Clinic to you. They can advise you on the vaccinations needed and the fees associated with each one.

    Recommendations and Notes from consultation with UGA Travel Clinic:
    • Must have MMR: verify up-to-date; can request MMR Titer if not sure
    • Recommended Medicines / Vaccinations:
      • Malaria: get 23 day prescription of malarone: easier on stomach and less pills to take.
      • Typhoid: shot lasts 2 years, pills last 5 years
      • Cholera: get zithromax as your diarrhea antibiotic to bring with you
    • Optional Vaccinations - Your Call:
      • Yellow Fever - one shot lasts a lifetime.
      • Japanese Encaphalitis: not likely but it can be present because of high mosquito population. Medicine is costly (approx $700 for two shots); comes in two doses and must be taken 28 days apart. We will have mosquito repellent with us.

    Buy generous supply of Ultrathon that is listed on the Stuff to Bring list. It is pricey but affective; same as used by military.
