visa requirements for Taiwanese nationals.

Taiwan dropped its visa requirements for Thai citizens last year on a trial basis. The representative office said that the reciprocal waiving of visas is a globally recognized practice. The office said that Taiwanese nationals have visa-free access to 124 countries, showing that Taiwanese tourists are welcomed around the world.
