Recently, an announcement has been made declaring that Philippine passport holders can enter the Republic of China (Taiwan) without a visa starting June of this year. Yay!! Who doesn’t feel good about this kind of news?
However, as I went over the official site this morning, I found out that the implementation of visa-free entry to the country mentioned above for Filipinos has been put off. As a matter of fact, it has been rescheduled to September 2017. Furthermore, whether will it be fully implemented on the said month or not, the answer is still quite uncertain. To be honest, I was a bit sad. Just a bit, not disappointed at all. I know they have the best reason to give.
Meanwhile, if you are itching to visit this interesting country, there are 4 ways to apply for a visa. Kindly click on them to read more.

- E-Visa (Online Visa)
- Appropriate visa stamped in passport
- Project for Simplifying Visa Regulations for High-end Group Tourists
The answer to the question now is YES! Thanks to the visa-free 9-month trial period that runs from November 1, 2017 until July 31, 2018. After that, my fingers are crossed and I hope this won’t be changed anymore.
