The Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) announced today that strict border control measures will continue to be implemented during Taiwan’s nationwide Level 3 epidemic alert. In accordance with these measures, entry to Taiwan has been 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 are halting the processing of visa applications during the nationwide Level 3 epidemic alert. 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.

The abovementioned measures may be adjusted by the CECC at any time in accordance with the status of the pandemic and associated operations. (E)
