Shortened quarantine period for certain countries?

This is from the CDC website:

The CECC announced the updated list of countries/regions eligible for shortened quarantine periods in Taiwan. The CECC reported that COVID-19 cases in South Korea continued downward trend recently and the status of the pandemic in the country has met the criteria for the CECC’s medium-risk category for four weeks in a row. Therefore, South Korea is added to the CECC’s medium-risk countries, effectively immediately. The latest list of eligible countries/regions is as follows:

  1. Low-risk countries/regions: New Zealand, Macao, Palau, Fiji, Brunei, Thailand, Mongolia, Bhutan, Laos, Nauru, East Timor, Mauritius, Vietnam, the Marshall Islands.
  2. Medium-risk countries/regions: Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia, Cambodia, South Korea.

Any information on the shortened quarantine time? How long is it? Is everyone eligible?

This is a program only for short-term business travelers. Travelers coming to Taiwan for other reasons are not eligible, regardless of where they’re coming from. More information in the original announcement here

Don’t count on United States being on that list anytime soon.
