MANILA - Visa-free entry for Filipino travelers to Taiwan has been extended for another year, Taiwan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Tuesday.

In a statement, the agency said it the visa-free privilege for Filipinos will continue for another year from August 1, 2019 to July 31, 2020.

Taiwan began the visa-free travel program for tourists from the Philippines, Thailand, and Brunei in 2016 in an effort to offset a slump in tourists from mainland China.
