Turkey has relaxed their visa restrictions for Taiwan to boost tourism.
As of 26 October, Taiwanese passport holders who meet the requirements can apply for an e-visa, granting them multiple entries for six months, with each stay valid for one month.
The Turkish Trade Office in Taipei informed The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) says Taiwan and Turkey have been introducing mutual measures to promote tourism, with the multiple-entry e-visa programme the latest to put into practice. These measures have helped draw more Taiwanese tourists to Turkey.
According to MOFA, Turkey has become a more popular tourist destination and transfer country for people doing business with European and African nations.
Last September, Saudi Arabia reported that nationals of Taiwan and 49 other countries will be able to apply for an e-visa to visit the Middle Eastern country. The reason for this move is to stimulate tourism.
