Given the continued severity of the COVID-19 pandemic worldwide, NIA has decided to provide an additional automatic extension to foreigners who entered Taiwan before or on MAR/21/2020, and have not overstayed their allowed duration of stay (including their initial visa and all previous extensions).

NIA stresses that, in order to prevent international movement of population leading to further outbreaks, as well as to reduce the burden of local epidemic prevention efforts, foreigners who had been allowed to stay for 180 days or more were previously granted 13 automatic 30-day extensions, since JUL/17/2020. The 14th extension has now been applied to eligible foreigners.
