Hello, I'll be travelling to Taiwan next week and I am wondering if I'll be able to use my visa electron debit card there?

Hi Kalina

Its best to have a card with the Plus or Cirrus signs on them. These can be used in Taiwan but still incur charges. It will also depend on which ATM you use, some accept foreign cards while others just accept
