Taiwan is now allowing business travellers to enter the country.

International travel is slowly returning to Taiwan.

Today marks the first day Taiwan reopened its doors to business travellers, as the country slowly reopens itself since the pandemic lock-downs.

The number of international arrivals at Taiwan's Taoyuan International Airport today rose to record numbers since mid-March, as business travellers flock to the country.

Last week, Taiwan announced that the government will begin allowing business travellers from low-to-moderate-risk countries/regions to enter the country once again, with hopes that this will revitalise the country's economy.

Crowds slowly returning at Taiwan's airport.

Countries currently deemed as “lower-risk” by Taiwan are New Zealand, Australia, Macau, Palau, Fiji, Brunei, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Thailand, Mongolia, and Bhutan.

Countries deemed as "low-to-moderate risk" are South Korea, Japan, Malaysia, and Singapore.

Business travellers must receive prior approval from the CECC prior to entering Taiwan, and fulfil the following conditions:

  • The length of stay is less than 3 months.
  • Individuals enter for short-term business-activities only (Inspecting goods, after-sales service, technical guidance and training, and signing of contracts).
  • The starting point is a country/region that has been deemed low-to-medium-risk and the visitor has no travel history to other countries/regions over the 14 days before boarding the flight to Taiwan.
