Taiwan will further ease its visa regulations for passport holders from South and Southeast Asian nations starting June 1.
According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the visa-waivers that were introduced in August 2016 on a 12-month trial basis for qualified citizens from Brunei and Thailand will be extended to July 31, 2018. The same treatment will be offered to citizens of the Philippines on a one-year trial basis.
Another new measure will allow citizens of Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam who meet certain requirements to apply online for a Travel Authorization Certificate, which allows single stays of up to 30 days and multiple entries within 3 months.
In addition, e-visas will be granted to business travelers from Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka who receive recommendations from TAITRA branch offices. Individuals from Bhutan and Sri Lanka will be able to apply for tourist visas to Taiwan.
