Taiwan is Visa-Free to Filipinos Starting November 1, 2017

Good news to all! Taiwan will now be visa free to Filipinos visiting the island state for the purpose of tourism, visiting friends, attending conferences, or business and the like. This visa-free policy will start November 1, 2017 and will be on trial until July 31, 2018. Filipino travellers under this policy can stay up to 14 days.

However, there are other requirement before you can be allowed entry. But it's just basic, just to ensure that you'll be back before the 14 day limit expires. Here they are:
  • a regular passport valid for at least 6 months from the date of arrival
  • a return ticket or ticket to your next destination (and visa for that destination if required)
  • hotel booking or other accommodation information (for those invited by Taiwan resident)
Note that the free visa policy is only available for regular passport. Diplomat and government official passports are not included even if their purpose is the same as mentioned above. Also, one must have no criminal records in Taiwan especially if he/she previously stayed there.



Visa is still required though for those who visits Taiwan for other purposes. These includes employment, missionary, education and others. If you are in doubt or have questions, you can contact Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) in Manila for more information. 

Important Note to Travel Authorisation Certificate (aka eVisa) Holders

Taiwan's previous policy requires travellers to Taiwan possess a Travel Authorisation Certificate (TAC) or an eVisa. Now if you have a TAC and travels to Taiwan before November 1, you can stay there up to 30 days as stipulated in that document. But if you enter on November 1 onward, you can only stay up to 14 days under the new visa-free policy.

SCAM: My First Scam Text This Year; 850000 Pesos from GMA Kapuso Foundation

It's a brand new year for everyone, including local scammers. And despite all the efforts by PLDT and Globe Telecom to curb text message scammers, from time to time, they still creep out and show up in our inboxes. And as hard to believe as the messages of winning some great amounts of money is the fact that there are still people who believe them. I personally know someone and that scam text message triggered events that turn her life upside down. So my point is, we still need to be careful regarding these scam messages. The danger is real! So without further ado, here's the scam message I received a few days ago. On Sunday, January 7, 2018 at exactly 3:33PM (PH time), I received this message from a certain Atty.

FREE Calls to Your Favorite Fast-food Chain on Globe Phones

In the age of mobile apps and ordering via internet, people are increasingly going from "calling" to "tapping and clicking" their fast food orders. The arrival of Honestbee , Foodpanda and just recently, Grab Food is a testament to how much this trend is growing. The visual effect these apps provide has a huge advantage over voice only "call". In an apparent attempt to pull back some users in using the hotlines, Jollibee Group teams up with Globe Telecoms to allow free calls on their Globe handset to order from their favorite fastfood. Yes, even without a load , you can make a call to the Hotlines. Here's the promotional poster. Just dial these numbers to order: Jollibee - #87000 Mang Inasal - #71111 Chowking - #98888 Greenwich - #55555 Burger King - #22222 For more information check this link http://business.globe.com.ph/news-and-events/jollibee-to-expand-express-delivery.html
