Taiwan review free visa treatment from four countries might be extended for 3 years

The visa-free privilege granted to tourists from Thailand, the Philippines, Brunei, and Russia is reviewed every year, that is why Taiwan review of its existing visa-free treatment to tourists from four countries and might be extended to a three-year. It was aimed at boosting tourism in Taiwan.

As China's ban on independent tourists to Taiwan took effect beginning Aug. 1 and was expected to have a negative impact on local tourism in the second half of this year, the government is mulling the measure as a means of attracting more tourists,

Taiwan began allowing visa-free entry for citizens of those countries when the government launched the Kuan Hung Pilot Project on a trial basis from Nov. 1, 2015, through Dec.31, 2019. The project currently covers India, Indonesia, Vietnam, Myanmar, Cambodia, and Laos.

By having a three-year visa-free treatment, it will enable travel agencies to organize group tours. Taiwan will monitor and asses all activities from the four countries and will review the 3-year proposal.

The Bureau of Consular Affairs under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has been asked to submit a report on how the program has been going this year and to conduct an assessment on the proposal to extend the review period by the end of June next year.

Taiwan's tourism industry will face a critical transformation over the next five years, and the government must explore diverse tourist resources to fill the void left over by a dwindling number of Chinese tourists.
