Since September 1, travellers from the two SARs have been able to apply for a visa to Taiwan online for free.

After receiving approval for their online applications, travellers can print the approval statements and give them to customs officers when entering Taiwan. The approval statement is in effect a 30-day visa.

According to China Airlines' general manager, Hong Kong, Johnson Sun, more than 10,000 applications have been received so far.

He said: "We have already added one more daily flight from Hong Kong to Taipei in the upcoming winter schedule, making it a total of 14 flights per day.

"Moreover, I also reckon another new travel pattern to come - weekend travel to Taiwan during long weekends."

Arrivals from Macau and Hong Kong rose 5.89 per cent to 450,927 for the first seven months of this year.
