How long does it take to receive quarantine compensation?

I spent 15 days in a quarantine hotel in Taipei. I’ve filed for my 1000 a day quarantine compensation online earlier this week. How long do I need to wait before I get the money?

I was told around 8 weeks.

Jeez. Where did you hear that?

The district office.

Just curious how do they give you this money?
Send you a check ? Direct to your bank or credit card ?

Starting from June 17, only Taiwanese nationals and those with ARCs are eligible to receive quarantine compensation:


Direct bank deposit.

Thanks for sharing this. I was going to ask if non-citizen nationals (e.g. NWOHR) are eligible, but then read that funds will not be deposited into foreign bank accounts. So that answers my question.

This is a long shot, but is it possible to get your arc and retroactively apply for reimbursement?
