Will the Increase in Maximum of Chinese Tourists to Taiwan Affect Quality of Domestic Tourism? Legislator Says No
On November 30, the Tourism Bureau under the Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC) announced the new tourism policy at congress. Legislators questioned the Minster of Transportation and Communications, Chen Jian-Yu, that the ministry promised to regulate the total number of Chinese tourists, but recently it declared to adjust the maximum number of these tourists per day, which may have a major impact on the domestic tourism industry.
According to understanding, the letter was addressed with a harsh manner, saying the documentary has produced terribly negative impact and was severely criticized by the related authorities of Hebei. In the letter, they even stress the policy regarding banning any documentary that damages national image on Taiwanese tour buses and claim to strictly review any documentary and propaganda clips to be played on the tour buses, as well as the words of each local tour guide.
Starting from October 1, Chinese visitors to Taiwan must possess certificate for both travel and health insurance that cover sudden illnesses, or else they will not be issued a Taiwan entry permit.
