Visa restrictions lifted for Taiwanese

The Cayman Islands Cabinet approved amendments to Immigration Regulations that allow Taiwanese passport holders to enter the Islands without a visitor’s visa.

The amendment is the first phase of an enhanced bilateral visa-waiver agreement between the Cayman Islands and Taiwan, according to Premier McKeeva Bush. The terms of this negotiation were initiated by the Taiwanese Representative office in London, who currently has visa-waiver agreements with some 114 countries, including the UK and most of its Overseas Territories.

Mr. Bush recently made an unofficial visit to Taiwan to discuss business opportunities between the two countries and hopes that this agreement will enhance economic, political and cultural links.

“It is expected to augment tourism and business development possibilities, as Taiwanese business people conducting business regionally will now have ease of access to travel to the Cayman Islands,” Mr. Bush said. “The third benefit is for Caymanian and Taiwanese students, who will have an opportunity to participate in reciprocal exchange programmes and further enrich their cultural appreciation, which is more and more a requirement in our globalized environment.”

Caymanians who now hold British passports already enjoy visa-waiver treatment for visiting Taiwan through the agreement between Taiwan and the UK. 

“However, this agreement would afford persons who hold Caymanian passports easier access to this vibrant point of interest in the Far East, once the agreement is reciprocated by Taiwan, as is expected,” a press release from the Premier’s office stated.
