Filipinos Can No Longer Enter Taiwan Without a Visa

Sad news for Filipinos with revenge travel fantasies: Taiwan has temporarily halted visa-free entry for passport holders in several Asian countries-including the Philippines.

According to Taiwan’s Central Epidemic Command Centre (CECC), as a way to ease its COVID-19 measures, the East Asian spot will reopen its borders under its visa exemption entry scheme on September 12. However, the easing of restrictions will only count travelers from United States, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, several European countries, and select South American nations that serve as Taiwan’s diplomatic allies.

Which passport holders need a visa to enter Taiwan?

Temporarily barred from the return of Taiwan’s visa-free program are countries including Chile, Dominican Republic, Israel, Japan, South Korea, Nicaragua, Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei, Russia, and the Philippines.

If you want to fly to Taiwan but are a citizen of any of these countries, then you’ll have to make sure that your purpose of travel is eligible. This includes visiting relatives, study, business visits, volunteer work, and those listed on the CECC’s website. You’ll have to apply for a special entry permit-and don’t forget to attach the relevant documents!
