Starting March 1, 2021, foreign nationals who wish to travel to Taiwan for reasons other than tourism and regular social visits may apply for a special entry permit with an R.O.C. overseas mission by submitting relevant documents and forms (https://visawebapp.boca.gov.tw/BOCA_EVISA/).
To safeguard domestic COVID-19 control efforts, all inbound travelers to Taiwan are required to provide a COVID-19 RT-PCR negative test report issued within three working days of your incoming flight's scheduled
departure time. Travelers should also log into the Quarantine System for Entry (scan the QR code or visit https://hdhq.mohw.gov.tw/Page/Notice), use your mobile phone to fill out the health declaration form prior to your departure, and make an affidavit stating that the location of your intended 14-day home quarantine in Taiwan (to be conducted in a quarantine hotel or in a home with one person per residence) meets relevant regulations.
Travelers who have not arranged quarantine places upon entering Taiwan will be rejected for boarding. All inbound travelers must stay in the hotel room for 14 days and are prohibited from going out at all times. After completing the 14-day quarantine, travelers shall continue to practice an additional 7 days of self-health management. During the 7 days of self- health management, travelers are prohibited from attending large gatherings, such as the TEPHINET conference, or engaging in activities with other individuals without wearing a mask, such as having meals together, going to the night market, or visiting other public places where crowds gather.
Violators will be fined NT 100,000 to NT 1,000,000, in accordance with the Taiwan Communicable Disease Control Act.
Wear a mask at all times. Purchase a prepaid SIM card from a Taiwan telecom service provider at the airport. Please enable the roaming service of your mobile device once you arrive Taiwan. You will receive a link for the health declaration form (Home Quarantine Notice) via SMS on your mobile device. Please use a free Wi-Fi and provide the Taiwan mobile phone number when you complete the health declaration form. Present the health declaration form (Home Quarantine Notice) for verification to quarantine officers when you arrive at the fever screening and quarantine station before going to the immigration and passport control area.
Travelers required to undergo quarantine are not allowed to take public transportation. You can use designated taxi services for transporting travelers subject to mandatory quarantine from the airport to your hotel or home. For passengers going to Taipei, New Taipei, Keelung, Taoyuan and Hsinchu, please board scheduled metered taxis at the airport; metered rides will only charge a maximum of NT$1,000.
Please record your temperature and health condition twice a day for 21 days. The Taiwan government will trace and contact you through the domestic mobile phone number during the quarantine period.
