Taiwan's visa-free implementation will commence in September instead of June this year. 

Earlier  today, May 16, Taiwan announced  that it is rescheduling to September the start of its visa-free privilege for Filipinos, which was earlier set to begin in June.
Taiwan, also called the Republic of China, will announce in September or at another "appropriate date" when this visa-free privilege will begin.
In the recent announcement, the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) in the Philippines told ABS-CBN News about the implementation of the one year visit-free entry for the Filipinos in June this year. 
Taiwan representative to the Philippines, Dr Gary Song-Huann Lin, on Tuesday iterated that granting this visa-free privilege is one of his priorities.
"The Philippines is considered as an important partner of Taiwan, so we are really making efforts to welcome more Filipino visitors to visit Taiwan, and the postponement of the visa-free arrangements is only intended to conduct seamless operations, facilitate the entry to Taiwan, and enhance security and safety for everyone," Lin said. 
Taiwan said Filipinos who would want to visit the country for tourism or quick trip "continue to apply for either a free travel authorization certificate (TAC), a payable e-visa, or the payable proper visa stamped in the passport."
A single-entry visa costs P2,400 ($48.29*) and a multiple-entry visa is worth P4,800 ($96.58*).
*Total $ to PHP: PHP49.70
