Taiwan imposed the mandatory group quarantine measure on travelers visiting Taiwan from the Philippines on September 24, requiring those travelers to follow the specimen collection procedure upon arrival, to complete the quarantine period at a group quarantine facility, and to undergo another second specimen collection before the end of the quarantine period.
Considering that the coronavirus pandemic has slowed down in the Philippines, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) announced on November 4 that the entry quarantine measure for arrivals from the Philippines would become the same as that for other travelers coming to Taiwan from countries listed at the Level 3 travel notice. Related details are listed below.
1. Travelers who have developed symptoms in the past 14 days prior to entry into Taiwan (those who have taken medication included) shall voluntarily notify airport quarantine officers of their symptoms and observe the specimen collection procedure or other necessary quarantine measures.
2. Travelers without symptoms shall return to home or go to a quarantine hotel for a 14-day home quarantine period as required. After completing the home quarantine period, travelers shall practice self-health management for 7 days.
3. Entry measures for migrant workers, foreign students, and other personnel whose entry is supervised by the competent authority are managed in accordance with related management measures issued by the CECC.
