Following its temporary suspension announced earlier this month, the Taiwanese Bureau of Consular Affairs has now added Philippine passport holders back to the list of those eligible for visa-free entry.
How long can Filipino travelers stay in Taiwan without a visa?
According to the bulletin published by the bureau, the exemption for Filipino nationals will be in effect starting from Sept. 29, 2022 until July 31, 2023. They will be able to stay in Taiwan for a maximum of 14 days, however, this doesn’t apply to holders of diplomatic or official/service passports. Alongside the Philippines, citizens from Thailand and Brunei have also been granted visa-free exemptions with similar conditions.
But before booking that flight, travelers will have to check off the list of requirements: 1) A passport with at least a six-month validity from the date of entry, 2) a confirmed return flight ticket, 3) proof of accommodation or hotel booking, 4) host or sponsor’s contact information, and 5) sufficient travel funds.
