Taiwan willing to lose P400 M for Filipinos’ visa-free travel

by

Taiwan is willing to lose up to P400 million ($8 million) in exchange of Filipinos’ visa-free travel to the country, Taiwan’s representative to the Philippines said Friday, May 19.

Dr. Gary Song-Huann Lin said Taiwan is ready to give up such amount to boost its ties with the Philippines.

He mentioned around 700,000 Filipino tourists who visited Hong Kong in 2016, while only 200,000 visited Taiwan, even though “Taiwan is much bigger than Hong Kong” and can also offer stunning tourists attractions.

A single-entry visa to Taiwan costs P2,400 ($48). A multiple entry-visa costs P4,800 ($96).

But for Taiwan, such amount is “not really that important”.

“We can always make money in the future. But most important is the friendship between our two peoples,” Lin said.

Prior to this announcement, the Taiwanese government has postponed the visa-free travel from June to September this year.

Lin said affected tourists can direct to the Taipei Economic Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) in RCBC Plaza, Makati City, with “all the documents they have” and their ticket to Taiwan.

Lin has also apologized for this postponement.
