  • Taiwan Extends Visa-Free Entry for Filipinos Until 2020
  • Filipinos may now marvel longer along the beautiful streets of Taiwan as the 14-day visa-free entry extends for another year, the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) announced on Tuesday, July 2.

    In a statement, TECO said that the visa-free privilege for Filipinos will continue for another year from August 1, 2019 to July 31, 2020 as “a display of Taiwan’s amity with the Philippines.”

    “The visa-free privilege also aims to deepen Taiwan’s multifaceted relations with the Philippines, particularly in the fields of tourism, trade, investment, education, agriculture, fisheries and healthcare, etc.,” it added.

    However, Filipino tourists must comply with the following guidelines to stay for up to 14 days without a visa:

    1. Possess an ordinary/regular passport with remaining validity of at least six months from the date of entry;
    2. Hold a confirmed return plane or boat ticket, or a confirmed plane or boat ticket, along with a valid visa, for an onward destination;
    3. Provide the confirmation of hotel reservations or an address and contact details for their stay in Taiwan, as well as a financial statement;
    4. Have a clean criminal record, as verified by immigration upon arrival at an airport or seaport in Taiwan.

    Take note that duration of the 14-day visa-free is not extendable and begins on the following day of arrival in Taiwan.

    Taiwan’s visa-free treatment started in November 2017, making a significant increase of Filipinos visiting the country.
