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