Last restrictions on foreign students lifted
The Ministry of Education says Chinese students enrolled in tertiary-level schools here in Taiwan are now allowed to enter the country. According to the ministry, the new regulation will benefit some 5,000 students from China.
They will be required to undergo the mandatory 14-day quarantine on arrival, either in a facility arranged by their school, or in one designated by the government.
The government first relaxed its rules on 17 June, to allow the re-entry of final year international tertiary students from 19 countries and territories, classified as low-risk or low-to-moderate risk for the coronavirus.
The regulations were further relaxed on 22 July, when the entry of final-year students from all other countries, including China, were lifted.
And on 5 August, students in their first three years of university study from all countries, excluding China, were allowed to enter Taiwan.
