The two-character ISO 3166 country code for TAIWAN, PROVINCE OF CHINA.

TW

1. ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code for Taiwan (Province of China). This is the code used in international transactions to and from Taiwanese bank accounts.

2. ISO 3166-2 geocode for Taiwan. This is used as an international standard for shipping to Taiwan. Each Taiwanese subdivision has its own code with the prefix "TW." For example, the code for the Municipality of Taipei is ISO 3166-2:TW-TPE. It is important to note that because the People's Republic of China regards Taiwan as a province, Taiwan also has a separate ISO 3166-2 designation as a Chinese province.
