Given that the COVID-19 pandemic situation has stabilized in Taiwan, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC), considering the strong demand for the families of R.O.C. (Taiwan) nationals to be reunited and seeking to safeguard the right to family reunification, announced on September 13 that it would allow foreign spouses of R.O.C. (Taiwan) nationals who have completed marriage procedures and their minor children to apply to enter Taiwan while strict border controls remain in place.
 
In cooperating with the CECC’s border control measures, R.O.C. (Taiwan) overseas missions will process visa applications for the foreign spouses and minor children of R.O.C. (Taiwan) nationals in accordance with the prevailing regulations applicable to visa applications for such individuals. The quarantine measures for such individuals entering Taiwan will be subject to the CECC’s quarantine regulations.
 
Individuals who have a spousal or dependent visa (marked TS or TC) that expired in the period from May 19 to September 13 this year will be granted an automatic visa extension until December 31, 2021. They do not need to re-apply for a special entry permit visa. (E)
