TAIWAN: Covid-19 Update

April 16, 2020


  • Taiwan restricts Hong Kong and Macau travelers from entry until a 14-day home or hotel quarantine passes upon landing in Taiwan.
  • In addition to an earlier decision to ban Mainland Chinese nationals from entering Taiwan, Taiwan has also imposed restrictions on Hong Kong and Macau citizens traveling to Taiwan and has raised a travel alert for both cities to Level 2, according to the island’s Center for Disease Control (CDC). Foreigners who have been in mainland China over the past 14 days are also banned from entering Taiwan.
  • Foreign nationals seeking to enter Taiwan for special reasons can apply for an entry visa as long as they have not visited or stayed in mainland areas severely affected by the coronavirus outbreak, including Hubei, Guangdong, and Zhejiang provinces, according to the Foreign Ministry. These persons must provide documents of their travel history in the past 14 days, a health certificate, and various other paperwork.
  • Taiwan has also suspended the issuance of entry permits on arrival and online processing of entry permits for Hong Kong and Macau residents.
