Taiwan citizens and ARC holders, entitled with NT$1,000 daily compensation on quarantine

Taiwan's Ministry of Health and Welfare just announced, that only citizens and Alien Resident Certificate (ARC) holders are allowed to apply for quarantine compensation starting on Wednesday (June 17).

To apply for the subsidy, qualified individuals must follow the country's disease prevention protocols and abide by the relevant rules. They will also be mandated to present documents  proving they have not received any type of salary during the entire quarantine period.

Successful applicants will then be paid NT$1,000 (US$33.8) per day, and they will be also eligible to apply to district offices from the day after their isolation. The ministry said, more information about the service can be found on their website.

Meanwhile, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) said, foreigners without ARCs will have to shoulder any damages caused by the government’s quarantine measures upon their arrival in the country. This is because, the task force for COVID-19 crisis believes that these individuals have only come to the country with their own desire so they have to take responsibility on the losses.

The coronavirus reparation measures that have took off last March 10, had seen 99,210 applications as of June 16. Among them, 77,769 have been granted, totaling NT$991.72 million in payments.
