17-Mar-2010 11:16 AM

Taiwan Entry and Exit Authority temporarily increased the daily quota of Chinese Mainland tourists permitted to visit the island from 4,300 to 6,000 per day between 15-Mar-2010 and 02-Apr-2010, in response to increased demand ahead of the upcoming Tomb-Sweeping Day/Qingming Festival (Xinhua, 16-Mar-2010). The Authority adopted the same temporary adjustment for the Spring Festival/Chinese Lunar New Year in Feb-2010, to handle approximately 35,000 Mainland visitors over the nine-day period.
