The most asked questions about covid-19 and Taiwan now
If I have received COVID-19 vaccination, do I still need to present a COVID-19 RT-PCR test report?
In consideration of the severity of COVID-19 worldwide and given that vaccination doesn’t provide 100% protection, and the vaccination coverage rate is not high in Taiwan, travelers who enter or transit through Taiwan and have received COVID-19 vaccination are still required to present a COVID-19 RT-PCR test report and to comply with home quarantine requirements as well as other related rules after entry in order to prevent COVID-19 and protect vulnerable populations in Taiwan.
We are an overseas government agency. When COVID-19 has continued to spread around the globe, we would like to know what new regulations such as border control would Taiwan’s government implement in response to COVID-19 outbreak in 2021.
Starting November 6, India, the UK, and Myanmar to be removed from CECC’s list of key high-risk countries; quarantine measures applicable to arrivals from areas under Level 3 travel notice to be restored for travelers with travel history to these three countries
On November 3, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) announced that it will temporarily suspend its use of the key high-risk country list that includes countries in this list mainly because of the Delta variant, and that the quarantine measures applicable to arrivals from areas under Level 3 travel notice will apply to arrivals from India, the UK, and Myanmar starting 00:00 on November 6 (time of arrival in Taiwan).
The CECC explained that with the continued spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, before boarding the flight to Taiwan, all travelers arriving from areas under Level 3 travel notice must provide a COVID-19 RT-PCR test report issued within three days prior to the flight schedule time. Before departure, travelers coming to Taiwan must arrange a place (a quarantine hotel or a room in a group quarantine facility at their own expense) where they can undergo quarantine. Travelers are also required to take a deep-throat saliva test (for PCR testing) after arrival and to take a quarantine vehicle to a quarantine hotel or a group quarantine facility where they plan to complete the 14-day quarantine at their own expense after testing. Travelers shall also undergo a PCR test before the end of their quarantine (between the 12th and 14th day of quarantine) and take a rapid test using an at-home test kit on the 6th day or 7th day of their self-health management period. Additionally, travelers should voluntarily report their test result back via text message.

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus that causes COVID-19 has mutated (changed), resulting in different variants of the virus. One of these is called the delta variant. The delta coronavirus is considered a “variant of concern” by the CDC because it appears to be more easily transmitted from one person to another. As of July 2021, delta is regarded as the most contagious form of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus so far. for more information, please visit https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/conditions-and-diseases/coronavirus/a-new-strain-of-coronavirus-what-you-should-know

The incubation period is defined as the time between exposure to the virus and onset of symptoms.
