IMPACT – MEDIUM
What is the change? Taiwan has extended visa-free travel to nationals of 11 Latin American countries.
What does the change mean? Nationals of El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Nicaragua and Paraguay are visa-waived for stays of up to 90 days, and nationals of Belize, the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Saint Christopher and Nevis, and Saint Lucia are visa-waived for stays of up to 30 days.
Background: Taiwan recently expanded its visa-waiver policy to numerous countries in South Asia and Southeast Asia and is looking beyond its immediate neighbors to attract business visitors and economic partnerships. To use the visa waiver, qualifying nationals must have proof of a return ticket or onward destination, a passport that is valid for at least six months beyond their stay, and a clean criminal record.
BAL Analysis: The expansion of Taiwan’s visa waiver will ease processing for additional nationals. Travelers are reminded that business activities are limited when traveling on a visa waiver and work activities are prohibited.
