Taiwan has relaxed COVID testing considerably. On entry to Taiwan,
a passenger is not subjected to enforced testing right away. People
who enter Taiwan are required to follow a "self-initiated epidemic
prevention" period for 8 days, which is called "0+7" (0 days of
quarantine and 7 days of epidemic prevention, where the day of
entry into Taiwan is counted as day 0).
If you test positive at any point during the 8 days
You will be quarantined for five days during which you cannot leave your
quarters. This means you would not be able to fly home during that time.
Overview of current regulations (we do not claim completeness or
correctness; please refer to the
official regulations for details):
Each person is issued 4 free COVID-19 tests at the airport when entering Taiwan.
To leave ones residence or otherwise go about during
"self-initiated epidemic prevention", one must have a negative test
(marked with name and date) on hand that has been taken within the
last 48 hours.
Socializing with many unspecified people, such as barhopping, is
not allowed during "self-initiated epidemic prevention".
If you come into contact with a confirmed case, you have 8 extra
days of "self-initiated epidemic prevention".
If you cohabitate with a confirmed case, you have 4 days of
quarantine (during which you are not allowed to travel) followed by
4 days of "self-initiated epidemic prevention".
You are required to wear a mask and maintain a social distance when
going out. You may take off the mask when eating; you should put it
on immediately after finishing your meal.
On entering the conference venue, we will ask to see your negative test
kit (a picture on your phone will suffice; the test kit must be marked
with your name and date).
