Visa-free travel to Taiwan is back on


PETALING JAYA: Starting today, Malaysians will not need a visa nor take a Covid-19 PCR test to travel to Taiwan.

“Malaysians are eligible for the visa exemption programme, with a duration of stay of up to 30 days,” said Taiwan’s Foreign Affairs Ministry.

To visit Taiwan, Malaysians only need a passport with at least six months’ validity upon entry, a return ticket and no criminal record.

The latest exemptions also cover visitors from Chile, Japan, South Korea and Singapore.

Earlier this month, Taiwan announced the reinstatement of visa-free entry for nationals of the United States, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, certain European countries, and its diplomatic allies beginning Sept 12.

Malaysia, however, was placed on the “temporarily suspended” list for visa-free entry, together with Singapore, Japan, South Korea, Thailand, Brunei, the Philippines, Russia, Chile, Israel, Dominican Republic and Nicaragua.
