TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Taiwan’s Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) will introduce new border restrictions as of Wednesday (May 19).

The CECC announced on Monday that due to the recent surge of COVID-19 cases, the entry of foreigners without effective residency permits will be temporarily banned.

Additionally, the CECC said transfer flights will also be suspended.

However, unspecified humanitarian and emergency exceptions will be made.

The measures will be active for a month, running from May 19 to June 18.
