Government to admit 2,238 graduating foreign students
Education Minister Pan Wen-chung says more than 2,000 foreign students from 11 countries and areas, who are graduating this year, will be allowed to return to Taiwan soon.
They have been banned from returning for more than three months due to border control measures imposed in March.
According to Pan, 2,238 students, now residing in 11 low-risk countries and areas, which include Vietnam, Hong Kong, Macau, Thailand, Palau, Australia and New Zealand, will be allowed to return to Taiwan in several groups.
The Ministry of Education says 90% of the students being allowed to return are from Hong Kong, Macau and Vietnam.
However, they will be required to go into quarantine for 14 days at hotels booked by their schools and approved by the education ministry on their arrival.
Students from China are not included on the list.
