Easing of rules depends on islands Covid situation
Government may also raise weekly arrivals cap to 60,000
Taiwan may scrap its three-day quarantine requirement of arrivals around mid-October if the pandemic continues to help ease, because the island joins other regional holdouts moving to reopen their borders to travelers.
The federal government will monitor the problem for another week, and plans to announce the easing fourteen days prior to the scheduled implementation, meaning the brand new rules will be effective around Oct. 13, Cabinet spokesperson Lo Ping-cheng said at a briefing on Thursday. The measures would likewise incorporate removing quarantine for tourists and lifting a ban on tour groups.
