Taiwan sets travel restriction for foreign travelers who visited China in last 14 days

Taiwan will deny entry to all foreign nationals who had been to China during the past 14 days in a statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The measures were necessary to protect public health and safety amid a novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) outbreak announced by Phoebe Yeh, director-general of the ministry's Bureau of Consular Affairs.

Foreign nationals including those with visa-free entry or those using landing or electronic visas will be prohibited entry if they have visited China within a two-week period (14 days).

Travelers with "special reasons" for visiting Taiwan who have visited China in last 14 days need to apply entry visa which will be required to present information on their travels in China, as well as a doctor's medical certificate.

Applicants will also be asked to sign an affidavit stating they will report to Taiwanese health authorities any potential symptoms of the virus.
