Taiwan reopens borders for international students & Indians


has announced to reopen borders for international students including Indians. Around 13,000 international students without residency permits, as well as Huayu Scholarship awardees, would be able to enter Taiwan, according to Peters Chen, education director, Education Division, Taipei Economic and Cultural Center in India. After a decrease in the number of Covid cases in the country, the decision was made. Prior to the commencement of the new semester in mid-September, the Ministry of Education Taiwan declared that international students will be permitted to study in Taiwan.


International students who are granted entry must present a negative Covid-19 RTPCR test result before boarding a plane and receive both a deep-throat saliva test as well as a PCR test upon their arrival.


Newly enrolled degree students and recipients of the Huayu Enrichment Scholarship can enter Taiwan soon. Chen said that universities have started informing students who already have got admission on how they can enter Taiwan and what types of measures they will be required to take. Basically, the 14-day quarantine and self-health management for another 7 days will be a must.
