Filipinos are now allowed to enter Taiwan without paying visa fees upon Taiwanese government’s approval.
Taiwan Premier Lai Ching-te has approved to give visa-free status to Filipinos according to a state-run news agency. The report said that as per Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA), the new measures are to be implemented around October and will cover a 14-day stay but other details aren’t disclosed yet.
According to Winston Chen, Director-General of the Taiwanese Foreign Ministry’s Department of East Asian and Pacific Affairs, the program was approved “to promote people-to-people, tourism, and commercial exchanges between Taiwan and the Philippines”.
The announcement of the visa-free status for the Philippines was already made around June but the implementation was postponed due to the need for “complete relevant administrative procedures and inter-agency coordination” according to MOFA.
Hopeful to improve ties with other states, the approval is a part of Taiwan’s New Southbound Policy that de-stresses visa rules for the 10 states that are member of the Association of Southeast Asian Nation.
