CECC raises travel notice level for Iran to Level 3: Warning, advises against all non-essential travel

On March 1, 2020, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) reported that the number of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) cases in Iran has risen sharply, and based on the risk of COVID-19 infection, the CECC has raised its travel notice level for Iran to Level 3: Warning, and advises the public to avoid all non-essential travel to Iran. In addition, starting from March 2, travelers who have traveled to Iran in the past 14 days (transits not included) are required to follow a 14-day home quarantine after entering Taiwan.

As the COVID-19 epidemic continues to expand internationally, the CECC has listed China (including Hong Kong and Macau), South Korea, and Italy and Iran under travel notice Level 3: Warning; Japan and Singapore under Level 2: Alert; and Thailand under Level 1: Watch. The CECC will continue to closely monitor the developments of the epidemic and adjust its disease prevention strategy and travel notices for countries as the situation requires.
