Travelers traveling Taiwan for business purposes will be able to return on March 7 after a 10-day quarantine has been shortened.
The remainder of the guests must still submit a negative PCR COVID-19 test result and must stay in quarantine for 14 days at a hotel that has been licensed by the government before leaving. If a resident can demonstrate that he or she lives alone, they will be permitted to quarantine at home. However, reopening for passengers who have received vaccinations is being discussed.
According to a press release, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of China (Taiwan) is willing to gradually adjust regulations governing foreign nationals’ entry into Taiwan “in accordance with decisions and standards established by the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC)” over the next several months.
According to Chen Tsung-yen, deputy chairman of the CECC, Taiwan would reopen to business visitors on March 7 and reduce the length of quarantine for all arrivals commencing on that day.
It was announced by the CECC that “we shall open to international business persons beginning March 7 in accordance with certain relaxations in the overall pandemic preventive measures.”
The first foreigners to be let back into the country will be those coming for business objectives, such as inspections, investments, employment, or fulfilling contractual obligations.
The quarantine period will be shortened from 14 to 10 days, instead of the current 14 days.
