Taiwan says Chinese business travelers can now apply to come to the island, ending a ban in place since Feb. 2020.
Taiwan’s Mainland Affairs Council announced that the travel ban has ended Thursday.
Chiu Tai-san, the head of the council, said those who want to visit relatives will also be allowed to apply. Applicants should ask for specifics from Taiwan’s Epidemic Control Center and the island’s immigration authorities. Chiu did not specify whether visitors would face shortened quarantine measures.
Taiwan has a mandatory 14-day quarantine upon arrival for those coming from abroad.
