Visa on arrival[edit]

Taiwan passport holders may obtain a visa on arrival but need to submit their applications via e-mail prior to arrival.

The VoA facility to visitors who may not be able to obtain visa at the Liberia's Missions or Embassies in countries of residence due to the absence of a Liberian mission or there is a urgency in meeting a business or work obligation in Liberia.[7] Also a visa may be issued if necessary to travellers starting their journey from a country that has no diplomatic representation of Liberia on condition that the transporting carrier sends a telex message the station manager in Monrovia. If the confirmation is received from the station manager and the copy of the telex confirmation is attached to the ticket, a traveller may board.[8]

A broader visa on arrival for tourists was announced in January 2019.[9]

Liberia plans to introduce eVisas from 2019.[10]
