Van: Het ministerie van Buitenlandse Zaken in Den Haag
Datum: 21 maart 2020

Beste Nederlanders,

Steeds meer grenzen gaan dicht. Daarom hebben wij (Het ministerie van Buitenlandse Zaken in Den Haag) een actueel overzicht nodig van de Nederlanders die op dit moment (tijdelijk) in het buitenland verblijven. De Nederlandse ambassade wil graag een actueel beeld hebben van het aantal Nederlanders dat zich nu in het land bevindt. Jij kunt daar bij helpen door je registratie, of registratie uit te breiden als je in het land bent.

MOFA announces that all travellers who entered Taiwan on or before March 21, 2020, on a visitor visa, a landing visa, or through a visa-waiver program and who have not overstayed their legal stay period will be granted an automatic 30-day extension. No application is required. The total period of stay cannot exceed 180 days.

Please see the details on:  https://www.mofa.gov.tw/en/News_Content.aspx?n=1EADDCFD4C6EC567&s=010999A1A2A7E158

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

I regret to inform you that we have cancelled this year’s celebration of our National Day,  King’s Day, for which a reception was planned on April 27th 2020. You can understand that we did not want to jeopardize the safety of our guests and keep Taiwan as safe as it has been since the start of the epidemic. We also felt it would be inappropriate to have a celebration while currently so many around the world are enduring hardship.

We are living in difficult and unprecedented circumstances. I wish you all the best in the coming period. Stay healthy and safe!

Best regards,
Guy Wittich

Representative
Netherlands Trade & Investment Office

Bericht van NTIO:

Veel landen nemen ingrijpende maatregelen om de verdere verspreiding van het coronavirus tegen te gaan. De situatie kan snel veranderen. Deze maatregelen hebben vergaande consequenties voor reizigers.

Overweeg of uw reis naar of verblijf in Taiwan nog noodzakelijk is, gezien de snel afnemende mogelijkheden om te vertrekken. Neem daarvoor contact op met uw reisorganisatie of luchtvaarmaatschappij om na te gaan welke mogelijkheden er nog zijn en benut de geboden mogelijkheden. Mocht u niet kunnen vertrekken, zorg voor een plek waar u langer kan verblijven, eventueel in overleg met uw reisorganisatie als u daarmee bent gereisd.

Voor vragen en antwoorden over de gevolgen voor uw reisplannen verwijzen we naar:

We urge you and your colleagues to cancel all travels and follow these regulations to reduce the risk of transmitting diseases, to protect your colleagues, family and friends, and to act responsibly.

 

Stay safe!

Taiwan Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have raised on 14 April the travel advisory for the Schengen Area, UK, and Ireland, including the Netherlands, to a Level-3 Warning for COVID-19 risk.

Given the increased risk of infection, the Taiwan CDC has also advised against all nonessential travel to the Netherlands. Currently, passengers that have a travel history to the Netherlands in the past 14 days are subject to a mandatory 14-day Self-Health Management period. Those arriving after 0:00 AM, on Tuesday, March 17, will be required to observe a strict home quarantine period of 14 days. According to the Communicable Disease Control Act, violators are subject to a fine up to NT$ 150,000.

We further recommend travelers to cancel all travels from the Netherlands to Taiwan and vice versa. In case travel is already scheduled, visitors have to follow the instructions for “Home Quarantine” (attached) to reduce the risk of transmitting diseases, protect colleagues, family and friends, and act responsibly.
