Thailand’s cabinet approved a plan at a meeting on May 7 to extend its visa exemption scheme for Republic of China (Taiwan) nationals for a further six months to November 11, 2024. The program allows travelers to stay for up to 30 days on each entry. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) welcomes this decision.


Improving convenience of business and leisure travel for Taiwan nationals is a priority for MOFA and its overseas missions. Thailand is a major New Southbound Policy partner country and a popular destination for Taiwanese travelers. Its extension of visa-free treatment for Taiwan nationals is a demonstrable result of promotion of the New Southbound Policy by Taiwan’s relevant government agencies. MOFA will continue to seek visa-waiver and other visa privileges for nationals traveling abroad.


MOFA reminds Taiwanese visitors to Thailand to abide by local laws and regulations and be aware of their personal safety. Nationals in need of emergency assistance should call the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Thailand emergency hotline at +66-81-666-4006 (081-666-4006 if calling within Thailand) or ask family or friends in Taiwan to call 0800-085-095 to get appropriate help.
