Given the continued severity of the COVID-19 pandemic worldwide, NIA has decided to provide the 13th 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 epidemic prevention on local neighborhoods, foreigners who had been allowed to stay for 180 days or more were previously granted 12 automatic 30-day extensions, since JUL/17/2020. The 13th extension is now in effect.
