Starting in March 2020, the Taiwanese government has implemented a temporary ban on entry for all foreign citizens as a preventive measure against COVID-19. This week, authorities have announced a partial relaxation of the travel ban. Starting on June 29, 2020, Taiwan will once again allow entry to business travelers with special permits, though travelers are barred from entering Taiwan for tourism or other social purposes. Concurrently, Taiwan’s Ministry of Education has also announced a phased reopening plan for foreign students to enter Taiwan. At present, only students from a list of 11 countries will be allowed to enter, not including the United States. Accordingly, the Consular Division at TECO New York will continue to temporarily suspend issuance of visas to US students. Please see the following announcement from the Ministry of Education for details: https://english.moe.gov.tw/cp-117-24066-b99d8-1.html
