This paper looks into the effect of foreign visits to major powers on an image of national security defenders for politicians of minor powers. We have three findings. First, foreign visits are effective. Second, visits to the US is more so than China. Moreover, visits to the US in perceived fair Taiwan-US relations for reassurance of informal ally, but visits to China in perceived bad Taiwan-China relations for damage control.
