I have gone through every topic related to this but wanted to see if there has been any experience in traveling to Taiwan without this so-called special entry permit, and having the immigration officer let you in instead of doing the entry permit ahead of time.
“Taiwan’s current entry control measures for foreign nationals are based on their purpose of visit and do not supplant original visa treatment privileges. However, whether foreign nationals may visit Taiwan visa free or on a landing visa during the pandemic period will depend on the boarding regulations and policies adopted by individual airline companies. In addition, they must submit supporting documents upon arrival at the airport to an immigration officer of the Border Affairs Corps for inspection to determine whether they may enter Taiwan.”
I live near a TECO office but they never answer the phone. If I am just safer in getting the permit I will go ahead and do so, but the new update on going to Taiwan and just going to the border officer are just confusing and of course if that is the case then that will of course be easier.
If anyone is in Taiwan or went after 8/27 when they seemed to have changed the rule I would really appreciate your experience. Thanks.
