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.
