imagesThe Government of Taiwan today announced visa-free entry for nationals of its diplomatic allies in the Caribbean, including Belize. According to a statement from Taiwan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the initiative is being done to “demonstrate the closeness between Taiwan and its allies in the Caribbean “and “the principles of mutual benefit and reciprocity”.


With this newest development, Belizeans along with nationals from, the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia, and St Vincent and the Grenadines will be given visa-exempt stays of up to 30 days.


Meanwhile, nationals of El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, and Nicaragua will be granted visa-free stays of up to 90 days.

The Foreign Affairs Ministry also added that it is hoped that the change “will lead to an increase in tourism, business, trade and cultural exchanges at multiple levels.”


The announcement made during Paraguayan President Horacio Cartes’s state visit to Taiwan, was meant to highlight the 60th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the Republic of China (Taiwan) and the Republic of Paraguay and to commemorate the two countries’ friendship.
