Anybody who's ever had to apply for a visa knows just how much of a pain it can be, so we're ecstatic to share that you can now visit Taiwan without one—but there's a catch!
The Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in the Philippines posted that Philippine passport holders can apply for visa exemption if they've been issued a visa from Australia, Canada, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, the U.S., the U.K., or any of the Schengen countries. You'd need to also prove that you've purchased a return ticket, and that you've "never been a blue-collar worker in Taiwan."
You can also apply for an exemption if you're a resident of the previously mentioned countries or if you possess an expired resident card that's less than 10 years-old.
In an effort to promote tourism, Taiwan has expanded their visa-free condition to several ASEAN countries: Thailand, Brunei, India, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Indonesia, Vietnam, and the Philippines.
Seriously though, when's the next seat sale? :P
