The Chinese mainland will remove entry permit requirements for Taiwan residents from July 1st, according to a revised regulation made public on Thursday.

Following the revision, Taiwan residents will only need a travel pass when entering the mainland, but will not have to apply for a visa-like entry permit every visit. The policy change was announced by Yu Zhengsheng, chairman of the CPPCC National Committee, at the seventh Strait Forum on June the 14th.

The revision also eases the requirements for documents needed for Taiwan residents to apply for the travel pass. Residents on the Chinese mainland are also set to benefit from the changes, with the term of validity of a travel pass to Taiwan being extended from five years to ten.

The travel pass validity for Taiwan residents coming to the mainland remains at five years.
