Taiwan’s Health Minister Chen Shih-chung says people who arrive in Taiwan and who are fully vaccinated against the coronavirus could be allowed to shorten their quarantine from 14 to seven days by mid-May.
According to Chen, arrivals would be able to apply to cut their quarantine period if they are fully vaccinated more than one month prior to visiting Taiwan.
Further eligibility requirements include having to present proof of a negative coronavirus test result before their flight and another negative test for coronavirus on the seventh day after their arrival. They must also be tested for antibodies in Taiwan.
However, the Central Epidemic Command Center says it has not yet decided how such tests would be carried out.
And health officials are warning that only a limited number of people will be allowed to shorten their quarantine periods.
