Taiwan Reopening for Tourism From October 13 – No Need For Mandatory Quarantine Upon Arrival

The wait is finally over.

Another piece of great news follows Japan’s reopening. The Taiwanese Government has announced that from October 13, all international travellers going to Taiwan will no longer need to be quarantined.

Currently, international travellers are required to undergo 3 days of mandatory quarantine and an additional 4 days of self-health monitoring. Though there is no need to take a pre-departure test, all international arrivals will need to take a PCR test and an ART test on the last day of mandatory quarantine.

Instead of scrapping the quarantine measures immediately, the Taiwanese Government has announced that changes will be made in 2 stages: 29 September onwards and 13 October onwards.


Changes from 29 September 2022:

  • Weekly arrival cap will increase to 60,000
  • No more on-arrival PCR Tests but arrivals need to take an ART Test instead
  • International travellers will receive 4 ART Kits
  • Visa-Free Access will be restored

Changes from 13 October 2022:

  • Weekly arrival cap will increase to 150,000
  • No more mandatory quarantine upon arrival
  • Arriving travellers are now permitted to take public transport
  • Tour groups are allowed to resume
  • Travellers from non-visa eligible countries can apply for visas.

Vaccinated and Unvaccinated travellers are allowed entry to Taiwan.
