Taipei, Taiwan is to grant visa-free treatment for eSwatini nationals, effective June 1, in an effort to boost bilateral tourism and trade exchanges, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) announced Friday.
Nationals of the African diplomatic ally who hold a passport with a validity of at least six months, coupled with accommodation reservations, financial statements and emergency contact information will be able to enter Taiwan for stays of up to 90 days, from the start of June, MOFA said.
When the measure takes effect, the existing requirement for the issuance of electronic visas to eSwatini nationals will be rescinded, MOFA noted.
The move will make eSwatini the latest diplomatic partner of Taiwan after Nauru, Tuvalu and allies in Latin America and the Caribbean to receive the visa-free privilege, it noted.
