【看CP學英文】中央流行疫情指揮中心經考量國內疫情防控情形及量能、人道衡平性及各方意見後,於今(15)日宣布,自7月16日零時起,開放國人之2歲(含)以下持居留證的陸籍子女申請入境,並得由父母親陪同,入境後須依規定完成14天居家檢疫。

TAIPEI (The China Post) — The Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC, 國家衛生指揮中心中央流行疫情指揮中心) announced on Wednesday that children under the age of two with a Chinese passport, provided that one of their parents is a Taiwan citizen and that he or she also holds a Taiwan residency visa, will be allowed to enter Taiwan starting on Thursday.

The child needs to be accompanied by his or her parents upon entering Taiwan and needs to undergo a mandatory 14-day quarantine.

針對陸籍配偶子女,今天起開放申請入境,不過條件是兩歲以下(107/7/7含以後出生的子女),可以在父母親陪同下,開放持有我國居留證的陸籍子女來申請入境。

The CECC emphasized that the child must have been born on or before July 7, 2018, to qualify for this special permit.

指揮中心表示,現階段防疫與人倫兼顧仍難以達到兩全其美,每項措施均可能無法讓所有人滿意,期望各界能諒解。本次優先開放2歲以下持居留證的陸籍子女申請入境,後續將觀察實施情形及中國大陸疫情發展等,再進一步評估是否有調整空間

The CECC made it clear that with every policy change, there will always be people who agree and disagree. They hope that people will understand that they are going to give priority to 2-year-olds.

Still, they said they will be monitoring the situation in China and will make adjustments accordingly.
