Taipei, Reciprocal visa-free entry between citizens of Taiwan and Palau will take effect on Dec. 1, with visitors from the Pacific ally getting visa-free stays of up to 90 days in Taiwan and vice versa, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Friday.
The reciprocal visa-free privileges were granted based on principles of equality and mutual benefit, the ministry said in a statement.
Travelers of the two countries must have a passport with at least six months of validity to be able to take advantage of the visa-free treatment, it said.
It was the latest reciprocal visa waiver arrangement Taiwan has made with a diplomatic ally, following similar agreements with Nauru, Tuvalu and the Marshall Islands in the Pacific and several Latin American and Caribbean allies.
Taiwan currently maintains diplomatic relations with 17 countries, mostly in those regions.
