No timetable for giving Filipinos visa-free treatment: ministry

Taipei, May 8 (CNA) The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) said Monday it has no idea when a plan to give Filipino tourists visa-free treatment will be implemented after a media outlet in Manila said it might be delayed for a month or two.

The ministry said on April 12 that it would allow visitors from the Philippines to enter Taiwan without a visa beginning June 1 on a one-year trial basis.

On Monday, however, the ministry would not confirm that date, saying instead that it submitted a proposal on the program to the Executive Yuan, but the Executive Yuan has yet to approve it.

When the green light is given, the ministry will work with other related government agencies to develop a more detailed plan and make public when it will take effect, it said.

Angelito Banayo, chairman and CEO of the Manila Economic and Cultural Office, said he was told by Taiwan's Foreign Ministry that the visa-free treatment "might be postponed for a month or two, "due to "technical problems," according to a report by Manila-based ABS-CBN News.

The April 12 press conference was held by Tourism Bureau Director-General Chou Yung-hui and Chen Hwa-yue, head of the MOFA's Bureau of Consular Affairs.
