Taiwan slightly relaxed its rules on COVID-19 testing of foreign travelers

Taiwan slightly relaxed its regulations on the timeframe for COVID-19 testing of foreign nationals traveling to Taiwan as announced by the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC).

The timeframe was changed the timeframe to three business days from the previous rule that foreign travelers to Taiwan must show a negative COVID-19 test that had been conducted no more than three days before their departure date.

Foreign nationals whose flights were close to or on a weekend had reported difficulty obtaining the COVID-19 test within the three-day timeframe, said CECC official Lo Yi-chun.

CECC already informed the airlines of the slight change to its regulations in that regard, reported by CNA

Currently, Taiwan had recorded a total of 448 COVID-19 cases, with 357 classified as imported, 55 as locally acquired, and 36 as a cluster infection on board a naval ship, an outbreak that was confirmed to have originated in Taiwan.
