TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Taiwan will continue to bar the entry of foreigners without a valid residence certificate despite the lowering of the pandemic alert to Level 2 on Tuesday (July 27).

The ongoing maintenance of strict border controls is at least in part due to the Delta variant, CNA reported, citing the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC).

Emergency exceptions and humanitarian considerations will be handled case by case, according to CECC head Chen Shih-chung (陳時中) on Monday. Flight transfers will also still be prohibited, he added.
