(ZIZ News) – Diplomatic relations between the Republic of China, Taiwan and St. Kitts and Nevis allow citizens of the federation to acquire visas to Taiwan free of charge.
Minister of Foreign Affairs Hon. Mark Brantley says while travel between the two countries is not yet visa- free, the easy process of acquiring visas speaks to the level of diplomatic relations between both countries.
He said, “The Taiwanese have done something that I think is quite commendable. What the Taiwanese have now done is to say that rather than having to send documents and come to the embassy to get a visa, that people from St. Kitts and Nevis can now go online, do the necessary paperwork online and most importantly its free for Kittitians and Nevisians.”
“So wherever you are now in the world, once you log on, you go, you fill in your information, and you get your visa right away. So it’s like a halfway between visa free but it makes life a lot easier. The fact that they have extended the courtesy to us, of making it free, is demonstrative again of that quiet diplomacy that I have been talking about,” the minister continued.
Brantley says discussions are ongoing to make travel to the Republic of China, Taiwan visa-free.
