No. 173 
The Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) has announced that beginning July 25, 2022, entry restrictions to the Republic of China (Taiwan) will be further relaxed to allow foreign nationals to apply for a special entry permit (visa) for volunteer work, religious work, study of religious doctrine, internships, international exchanges, and the Working Holiday Schemes (Youth Mobility Programs).  The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) will adjust visa regulations accordingly.

Currently, foreign nationals are allowed to enter the country for the purposes of visiting relatives, joining family, studying, learning Mandarin, conducting business, investing, fulfilling contractual obligations, and engaging in employment, as well as for emergency and humanitarian reasons and other special cases approved by the CECC.    
Foreign nationals wishing to visit Taiwan for the aforementioned purposes must prepare the relevant documents and apply for a special entry permit (visa) at an R.O.C. (Taiwan) overseas mission. (For further information, please visit the Bureau of Consular Affairs website [link].) 
Quarantine measures for foreign nationals are implemented in accordance with CECC quarantine regulations. Entry regulations are subject to change and may be adjusted based on pandemic developments. (E)
