Free Visa Entry for Filipinos to Taiwan is expected to extend



A free visa treatment for Filipinos is expected to extend up to next year July 31, 2020. According to Minister without Portfolio Chang Ching-sen. And he confirmed that indeed the Executive Yuan's stance is to approve the extension.

Lately, the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in the Philippines has been receiving hundreds of emails every month from Filipinos expressing their hope that the visa-free policy will be extended as soon as possible, reported CNA.
According to the Ministry of Transport's Tourism Bureau, 70,803 Filipino tourists arrived in Taiwan between January and February this year, representing an increase of 31.37 percent over the same period last year.

most of the Philippine tourists in Taiwan range in age between 20 and 40 and are on a limited budget. They prefer to book cheap tickets and usually plan their trips three to four months in advance, and thus they need to know in advance whether the visa-free privilege will be extended.

In order to promote the New Southbound Policy and attract tourists from Southeast Asia to Taiwan, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) launched its pilot program allow citizens of the Philippines to travel visa-free to Taiwan in November 2017.
