Following an announcement by the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of China (Taiwan) will reinstate visa-exempt entry scheme for nationals of the United States, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, European countries, and diplomatic allies starting September 12, 2022. The scheme is open to the designated nations' nationals entering Taiwan to engage in activities that do not require a permit, such as business, exhibition visits, fact-finding missions, international exchanges, visiting relatives, tourism, and social events. For activities that, according to the laws and regulations of relevant agencies, do require a permit, travelers must apply to the central competent authority of the R.O.C. (Taiwan) for permission and obtain a special entry permit (visa) from an R.O.C. (Taiwan) overseas mission.
For information on visa exemption regulations, required documentation, and other details, please visit the Bureau of Consular Affairs website （https://www.boca.gov.tw/cp-149-4486-7785a-2.html ）. Foreign nationals who wish to travel to Taiwan but do not meet the requirements for visa-exempt entry should ensure that their purpose of travel is among the reasons for entry currently allowed by the CECC. They must prepare relevant documents and apply for a special entry permit (visa) at an R.O.C. (Taiwan) overseas mission. A cap on the total number of arrivals remains in place and inbound passengers are still required to follow current CECC regulations of three days of home quarantine and four days of self-initiated pandemic prevention.
The above measures will be adjusted on a rolling basis by the CECC based on the development of the pandemic.
