Filipinos are among Taiwan’s most popular tourists.
Filipino tourists are among Taiwan’s most welcome since they don’t travel on a tight budget, according to the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) in Manila on Friday.
Peiyung Hsu, a TECO representative, made the proclamation as he welcomed more Filipinos to travel to Taiwan and benefit from its visa-free entrance policy amid the reopening of the border and streamlined procedures.
At a tourism workshop in Pasay, he remarked, “I hope to see more Filipino friends discover the beauty of Taiwan as Taiwan has reintroduced the 14-day visa-free program for Filipinos until July 31, 2023. You are the most welcome among the ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) nations because you spend.
The program for Filipinos to enter without a visa was reintroduced in September 2022 and will be reviewed for an extension before the end of July 2023.
Hsu, meanwhile, voiced optimism that Taiwan may receive the same visa-free status from Manila.
According to him, Taiwan hopes to draw at least 300,000 Filipino tourists and to persuade roughly 200,000 of its visitors to make a trip to the Philippines.
“We also hope that the Philippine government would waive the visa requirement for Taiwanese travelers” (entry to the country). Now that we are paying for the visa, let’s take care of these visitors going to the Philippines, he remarked.
According to Hsu, a number of airlines have begun reopening routes between Taiwan and the Philippines, and there are now at least 78 flights per week in total, including charter flights.
While EVA Air is preparing to begin daily direct service between Taipei and Clark on March 30, China Airlines and StarLux Airlines have just restarted service from Taipei to Cebu and vice versa.
To meet the growing demand for leisure travel, AirAsia Philippines resumed its Manila-Kaohsiung service last month.
Taiwan had been stepping up efforts to draw more Filipino visitors to experience its cuisine, culture, and natural attractions.
Additionally, on Friday, the Taiwan Tourism Bureau attended the SMX Convention Center’s three-day 30th Travel Tour Expo.***
