Foreign nationals entering Taiwan must provide COVID-19 swab test results

Taiwan’s Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) announced that the country will begin allowing foreign nationals to apply to enter the country for reasons other than tourism and social visits.

The new policy made by CECC will have no effect on entry measures for foreign students or migrant workers which are being handled by  education and labor ministries, respectively.

CECC strictly assures that travelers who receive approval to enter Taiwan will be required to present a negative COVID-19 test taken within three days of their flight and to quarantine in accordance with current regulations after their arrival.

COVID-19 swab test range from an amount of P5,000 to P10,000. The policy will allow foreign nationals to apply for entry to Taiwan for reasons other than tourism and social visits, the CECC said.

Valid reasons for travel under the new policy will include internships and training programs; attendance at international conferences or trade shows; international exchange programs; volunteering; missionary activities; youth exchanges; and job searching.
