The Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) aims to speed plans to fully reopen Taiwan’s borders after the next COVID-19 wave has passed, which is expected to occur in October at the latest.
The COVID-9 pandemic has been spreading for more than two and a half years.
Many countries have opened their borders.
When will the Taiwan border be lifted?
People are waiting. Wang Bisheng, commander of the Central Epidemic Command Center, revealed yesterday that the border is expected to open in October, and for the first time explained the unblocking plan.
Chuang stated at the CECC’s daily press briefing on Thursday that opening Taiwan’s borders under a “0+7” COVID-19 prevention regulation, in which people entering Taiwan would not be subjected to quarantine but would be required to observe seven days of self-conducted epidemic prevention measures, could be possible after the current COVID-19 outbreak in Taiwan has decreased significantly.
Wang Bisheng said that the pace of border opening has never stopped, but the current measures seem to be relatively small. The command centre changed the entry quarantine from “7+7” to “3+4” on June 15, and the total number of entries was also relaxed from 40,000 to 50,000 per week on August 22. , in the last 4 days of “3+4”, the quarantine place for self-prevention and quarantine will be changed to 1 person and 1 room.
According to the plan of the Tourism Bureau, inbound passengers must enter and leave in groups and be fully vaccinated, and travel agency receptionists must also take 3 doses of vaccines.
