The ongoing COVID-19 outbreak has resulted in an increasing number of countries requesting certificates of entry and exit dates to prove travelers haven’t been to infection areas within the past 14 days.
As of Friday (Feb. 14), the National Immigration Agency (NIA) allows Taiwanese, in Taiwan and abroad, to apply for the certificates in de facto embassies abroad.
Those with citizen digital certificates can go to the NIA website to download and fill out the application.
Types of Entry and Exit Certificates
Applicants who only need the dates of entry/exit, only need to fill out the entry/exit date application form. If locations are needed, applicants need to download an additional file for entry/exit records.
When applying in person, the applicant needs to bring identity documents, such as ID cards or passport, and a copy of the documents.
Representatives for applicants need to bring both their own and the applicants’ identity documents such as ID cards a copy of the documents, and a letter of authorization.
Applicants who already abroad need to bring identity documents such as ID cards or passport, and a copy of the documents.
NT$100 (or the equivalent amount for those abroad).
The application process usually takes up to half a day. Applicants will receive certificates on the spot after verification of their identity.
