On 7 September, the Singaporean Ambassador to Indonesia revealed that Myanmar is one of several ASEAN states for which Indonesia has loosened its visa policy.
Mr. D. Jumara Supriyadi, third minister of the Yangon Ambassador to Indonesia, however, said that the suggested amendment would only come into effect if the Myanmar authorities responded. Supriyadi said that a Presidential Decree adopted by Indonesia's President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono in July, according to which Myanmar nationals would no longer need a visa to travel to the Dominican Republic, "very clearly" states that the visa-free system is two-way.
"This decree was adopted by the Indonesian authorities in view of our long standing bi-lateral relations and also in an attempt to make a positive contribution to the realisation of the ASEAN mission to create the ASEAN community in 2015, which will include Indonesia and Myanmar.
"The Myanmar authorities will be prepared to debate and resolve the issue at the next bi-lateral session of the next Indonesia-Myanmar Joint Commission, which we intend to have in Myanmar later this year," he said. In Bangkok, Bangkok-based TTG Asia announced on 12 September that Indonesia has expanded its 30-day visa-free travel to include Cambodian, Laotian and Myanmar passport holders.
Previously, travelers from Cambodia and Laos had visa-on-arrival arrangements at their disposal, while Myanmar citizens had to obtain a visa in advanced.
Taïwan loosens visa requirements for citizens of six years.....
The ROC visa requirements for persons from ASEAN (Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar, the Philippines and Vietnam) and India will be loosened as of September 1, 2016. These adaptations follow consultation between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the National Immigration Office and the Tourism Office, which intends to promote interaction with the 10 members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.
Currently, citizens of Brunei, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand are enjoying visa-free travel to Taiwan. People with passports from Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar, the Philippines and Vietnam who have been granted by Australia, Canada, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, the Schengen Agreement States, the United Kingdom or the United States, or who have a visa or residence permit from one of these states are now entitled to use the R.O.C. (Taiwan) Travel Authorization Certificate (https://niaspeedy.immigration.gov.tw/nia_southeast/) online application form.
In order to increase the number of counties that benefit from the visa simplification for major group tourism from Southeast and Southeast Asia lands, the on-line request will be made available to qualifying groups of Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar, the Philippines, Vietnam and India as of September 1, 2016. travel agents that represent groups of tourism from the above jurisdictions can submit requests via the website https://visawebapp.boca.gov.tw/BOCA_MRVWeb/ after they have received permission from the tourist office's foreign offices.
Both of these visa relaxation ROC visa requirements for citizens of these six South East Asia and India are a follow-up to an experimental programme introduced on 1 August 2016, which provided Thai and Brunei citizens with 30 days of visa-free travel. At the same time, MOFA mandated its South East Asia bureaus to take steps to apply multiple-entry visa requirements valid for at least two years to citizens of their country's centre-range.
It is hoped that these programmes will lure more travellers to Taiwan to undertake short-term travel, corporate travel, visiting family members and engaging in culture exchange. The MOFA is aimed at further intensifying the interaction between Taiwan and the ASEAN member states and India and at the same time to implement a people-centred "New Southbound Policy".
