Finance Minister John Tsang says Taiwan residents with Mainland entry permits may visit Hong Kong for up to 30 days, - up from just seven - without applying for any endorsement from September 1.
Tsang, who is also the Hong Kong-Taiwan Economic & Cultural Co-operation & Promotion Council Honorary Chairperson, made the remarks today at the second joint meeting of the council and the Taiwan-Hong Kong Economic & Cultural Co-operation Council.
The Hong Kong government is working on detailed arrangements to allow Taiwan residents to make prior entry registration online, he said, adding this would bolster Hong Kong-Taiwan exchanges.
He said progress had been achieved in trade, food safety, travel, financial and transportation between the two places even though the two councils had only been established for a year.
