Philippines mulls opening visa office at int'l airport

MANILA--The Philippines is considering setting up a visa office at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport in the wake of Taiwan's inclusion in the United States' visa waiver program, said an official from the Manila Economic and Cultural Office (MECO) yesterday.

“We are studying the possibility of opening up an office in the airport in Taiwan for receiving visas before departure,” said Amadeo Perez Jr., chairman of the MECO, which represents the Philippines' interests in Taiwan in the absence of diplomatic ties.

While the Philippines does not grant Taiwan visa waiver status, Perez said measures have already been taken to ease visa application procedures for Taiwanese nationals.

Taiwanese nationals can now apply for a visa in the morning and expect to receive it after lunch, he noted.
