Starting February 7, 2020, the Republic of China (Taiwan) will implement entry restrictions and visa control measures on foreign nationals who have visited or resided in the People’s Republic of China (PRC) in the previous 14 days.
In response to the expanding novel coronavirus outbreak, as well as to safeguard public health security and strengthen management of the flow of people entering Taiwan, the Taiwan government will adopt the following measures for foreign nationals seeking to enter the country:
1. In general, starting February 7, 2020, foreign nationals who have visited or resided in the PRC over the past 14 days before they arrive in Taiwan will be prohibited from entering Taiwan (including those who are eligible for visa-free treatment, landing visas, and e-visas, as well as those carrying valid visas).
2. However, foreign nationals seeking to enter Taiwan for special reasons may apply for an entry visa as long as they have not visited or resided in areas in the PRC severely affected by the novel coronavirus outbreak (level 1 and level 2). When applying for such a visa, foreign nationals must provide the following documents in order for the Taiwanese overseas mission to process the application in accordance with relevant regulations:
2.1. Complete travel history comprising the previous 14 days. (Applications submitted by those who have been to severely affected areas in the PRC during this period will not be accepted.)
2.2. Certificate of a health checkup conducted in the previous seven days showing that the applicant does not have a fever of 38 degrees Celsius or higher and is not suffering from respiratory tract or lung infections.
2.3. Signed affidavit stipulating that the applicant shall immediately notify health authorities in Taiwan when experiencing any symptoms detailed in paragraph 2.2.
2.4. Other documents required for entry visas to Taiwan based on the purpose of visit.
3. Foreign nationals possessing a valid Taiwan Resident Certificate who have visited or resided in the PRC in the previous 14 days shall self-isolate at their home and carefully monitor their health for a period of 14 days after returning to Taiwan.
4. The aforementioned measures may be adjusted or updated based on the development of the novel coronavirus outbreak.
