What quarantine regulations must travelers follow for COVID-19 prevention purposes before they board the flight to Taiwan?
- Regardless of their nationality (including R.O.C. nationals and foreign nationals with an Alien Residence Certificate) or travel purpose (for study, work, diplomatic affairs, etc.), travelers who arrive at an airport in Taiwan must present a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test report issued within 3 days (working days) prior to the flight schedule time to the airline staff, comply with border control and quarantine measures imposed by the local government of the place of departure and comply with terms and conditions, and policies concerning providing services to passengers issued by each airline before they can board their flight.
- Apart from presenting a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test report prior to boarding, travelers must also use their mobile phone to log into the Quarantine System for Entry when checking in or prior to boarding at the place of departure. Those who enter Taiwan shall arrange quarantine accommodation (a quarantine hotel or group quarantine facility where they plan to stay at their own expense) before visiting the country. Such travelers must also state that they have met related requirements by making relevant affidavits on the Quarantine System for Entry. Furthermore, they must undergo home quarantine and observe other relevant epidemic prevention measures after entry.
- Starting June 22, all travelers entering Taiwan from abroad, whether symptomatic or asymptomatic, are required to undergo a government-funded PCR test one day before their home isolation or home quarantine period ends.
※The "flight schedule time" refers to the flight schedule time announced by the airline company; travelers shall arrange a COVID-19 test and obtain the test report in time based on the flight schedule time.
