Taiwan put an end to many quarantine restrictions on Thursday and reopened its borders to international tourists. After a long period of about 2.5 years, overseas travellers can finally embark on a journey to this country. And with the announcement of this grand news, tourists already started flocking here.

The first people to enter the country after a halt of over 2.5 years flew from Bangkok at Taoyuan International Airport sometime after the clock struck midnight. A mascot and Taiwanese officials were present to welcome the first group of passengers from Thailand. Chang Shi-Chung, the director of the Taiwan Tourism Bureau was also present in the arrival hall of the airport where he presented gifts to the visitors.

The good news is that now there are no mandatory rules to undergo any PCR test or quarantine after reaching Taiwan. With the lifting of all the major COVID-19 entry restrictions, it is now a good time to explore here. Though PCR tests and quarantining are not mandatory now, visitors will need to undergo a rapid antigen test on the day of arrival. A negative report of this antigen test is necessary.

Also, a major thing that the tourists need to follow on arrival to this country is they need to monitor their health for a week. If anyone plans to explore the places in between the monitoring week, a negative test report is required. The negative report needs to be of the day of travel or the day prior to that.
