Taiwan nationals and Alien Resident Certificate holders may apply to enter Taiwan while strict border control measures remain in place

Considering the need for and right to family reunions of Taiwan nationals and Alien Resident Certificate holders residing in Taiwan, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in coordination with other government agencies, announces that starting from 12th April, foreign relatives of Taiwan nationals and valid Alien Resident Certificate holders residing in Taiwan may apply to enter Taiwan. They may submit an application for a special entry permit (visitor visa) for the purpose of visiting relatives at Taiwan overseas missions by presenting proof of relationship to Taiwan nationals or Alien Resident Certificate holders residing in Taiwan. 

This arrangement comes in addition to the other purposes for entry to Taiwan currently allowed by the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC)—i.e., joining family (foreign spouses and minors only), study (formal degree programs), studying Mandarin, business visits, investment, fulfilling contractual obligations, employment, emergencies, and on humanitarian grounds, and other cases given special approval by the CECC. 

For details on the documentation requirements, please refer to the Bureau of Consular Affairs webpage on visitor visas for visiting relatives : boca.gov.tw/cp-158-251-e78ef-2.html
