Taiwan plans to allow entry of foreign visitors seeking medical treatment

According to the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) on Wednesday (June 24), Taiwan is planning to relax its border controls to allow the entry of foreign visitors seeking for medical attention.

The health ministry plans to ease restrictions on foreign nationals traveling for medical treatment except for  those seeking physical check-ups and cosmetic surgery.

Applicants will be admitted to Taiwan regardless of how severe their illnesses are, as long as they have proven that they have tested negative for COVID-19 beforehand. Upon arrival, foreigners must also follow quarantine rules  and safety measures imposed by the country.

According to CECC official Shih Chung-liang, once the ministry decided for the reopening date, foreign nationals will be able to file an application to enter Taiwan for medical treatment with a permission to bring one or two close relatives with them.

Shih added, that the applications and all supporting documents will be processed by a special panel commissioned by the health ministry.
