No more short-term visa for Taiwan

5 July 2010

Taiwanese citizens travelling to the EU for a shorter period of time will no longer need a visa, according to a new proposal put forward by EU Commissioner Cecilia Malmström today.

"I am glad to be able to put forward this proposal, which I hope will contribute towards strengthening EU-Taiwan relations. Not least since the EU is Taiwan's fourth largest trading partner", said Cecilia Malmström.

The proposal states that Taiwanese citizens staying in the EU for 90 days or less are not required to apply for a visa. It is now in the hands of the European Parliament and the Council to decide whether this proposal will enter into force.
