Beginning May 9, mandatory quarantine for arrivals to be shortened to 7 days; 7-day self-health management remain required for arrivals starting 8th day



On May 3, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) announced that quarantine for all arrivals will be reduced to seven days starting 00:00 on May 9, 2022 (incoming flight's scheduled arrival time in Taiwan), and changes to related measures are listed below.

I. Required quarantine period and quarantine location:

a. The number of days an arrival should quarantine will be shortened to seven days, and the day of arrival counts as Day 0; a seven-day self-health management will be required starting the 8th day.

b. The arrival should quarantine at home or a residence of a friend or relative, and the principle of one person per residence should be observed. If the principle of one person per residence cannot be followed, the arrival should complete the 7-day quarantine at a quarantine hotel.

c. Family members/household members who arrive on the same day as the arrival may choose to quarantine together in their home or a residence of a relative or they may stay in the same quarter depending on their willingness and room types of the quarantine hotel where they stay. However, due to the space of single rooms, it is recommended that no more than two people share a room.

II. Testing measures:

a. PCR testing: arrivals should undergo PCR testing upon arrival (Day 0) in accordance with the current testing requirement.

b. Rapid testing using at-home rapid test kits:

1. A rapid test will be given on the last day (Day 7) of the quarantine period. One additional rapid test kit will be provided and can be used if symptoms appear during quarantine.

2. In consideration of the age limit on who can use at-home rapid test kits, children under two years of age who are under home quarantine will undergo a PCR test on the last day of quarantine period. People who have difficulty using at-home rapid test kits on their own will receive rapid tests arranged and performed by local governments.

3. At-home rapid test kits will be provided to inbound travelers by international airport/port personnel upon entry.
