SOUTHEAST ASIA: Following a long series of advocacy and appeals, migrant workers from the Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia, and Thailand have been granted entry to Taiwan.
The Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC), which has been charged with coordinating Taiwan's response to the Covid-19 pandemic, said the market access for workers from those four countries was to return from today, November 15.
CECC head Chen Shih-chun said the previous points-based system had been abolished in favour of a second phase of entry regulations.
To be admitted, migrant workers must be fully vaccinated and upload their vaccine certificates to the Ministry of Labor's website.
Employers should arrange for 14 days' of quarantine, plus a further seven days of self-monitoring before attending the workplace.
