Singaporeans can visit Taiwan visa-free for 30 days from Sep 29; no more PCR test on arrival
Restrictions such as the three day quarantine will remain for now.
Considering making Taiwan your next travel destination? Visitors from Singapore will soon be able to enter Taiwan visa-free for up to 30 days from Sep 29.
Taiwan’s Bureau of Consular Affairs on Thursday (Sep 22) updated its list of countries that qualify for 30 days of visa-free entry to include countries like Singapore, Malaysia and the Dominican Republic from Sep 29.
Visitors will still be required to serve a three-day quarantine at homes or designated hotels on arrival.
Previously on Sep 12, Taiwan resumed visa-free entry to multiple countries including the United States, Canada, New Zealand and Australia. Singapore was initially on the list of countries eligible for visa-free entry, but was recategorised to the ‘temporary suspending’ category on Sep 6, meaning visitors from Singapore would still require a visa to enter Taiwan.
Taiwan is considering plans to ease more restrictions from around Oct 13, including the possibility of lifting quarantine for tourists altogether, should the COVID-19 situation remain under control.
Taiwan’s daily number of reported cases have been steadily increasing since August 2022, with 46,834 cases reported on Sep 21.
To qualify for visa-free travel, visitors will need to have a formal passport that has at least six months of validity left at the time of arrival and a confirmed ticket to leave the country at the end of their stay, including a visa for their next destination if required.
