The Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) announced today that strict border control measures will remain in place after the nationwide epidemic alert is lowered to Level 2 starting July 27. The continued implementation of these measures is based on the resurgence of COVID-19 infections and the ongoing transmission of the Delta variant around the world and reflects Taiwan’s determination to remain vigilant. The measures aim to prevent increased pressure from imported cases on Taiwan’s quarantine and antipandemic capacity and medical resources. Accordingly, entry to Taiwan will continue to be suspended for foreign nationals not holding a valid R.O.C. (Taiwan) Resident Certificate. Exceptions are being considered on a case-by-case basis for emergencies and on humanitarian grounds.

In line with this antipandemic policy, R.O.C. (Taiwan) overseas missions will continue to halt the processing of visa applications. Entry has also been suspended for persons holding a valid visitor visa or resident visa. Foreign nationals requiring entry to Taiwan for emergencies or on humanitarian grounds, such as attending a funeral or visiting a critically ill family member, must receive special permission from the CECC before applying for a special entry permit visa from an R.O.C. (Taiwan) mission.

For foreign nationals whose special entry permit visa expires while the strict border control measures are in place, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs will adopt appropriate coordinating measures in accordance with the CECC’s border control adjustments.

The abovementioned measures may be adjusted by the CECC at any time in line with domestic and overseas pandemic developments and community-based antipandemic policy. (E)

The aforementioned entry restrictions are subject to change depending on the development of the COVID-19 outbreak. Changes will be announced by the CECC. Latest regulations can be found at:
