Taiwan might not have a seat in the UN but it’s now on the US No-waiver list. Meaning that folks with the Taiwan ROC passport can enter the US for up to 90 days without a visa. The possibility of this has been in the news for a while in the last 2 years and it’s finally a reality. Only 37 nations, 7 of which are in Asia, have this distinction. This also means the Taiwan ROC passport, which I don’t have though I don’t mind, is now definitely more “prestigious” and convenient than the Hong Kong passport. Numerically, I think the HK passport is ahead, but both cover the major nations like the EU countries and Japan. Well, grudging congrats, Taiwan.
