Taipei, Sept. 14 (CNA) Taiwan will grant a further 30-day extension of stay to foreign visitors who entered the country on or before March 21 and have no record of overstaying, the National Immigration Agency announced Monday.

The automatic extension will apply to all foreign nationals who entered Taiwan visa-free or on a visitor's or landing visa on or before that date.

Taiwan has previously announced automatic 30-day visa extensions on March 21, April 17, May 18, June 15, July 17 and Aug. 14, to avoid forcing foreign nationals out of the country at a time when COVID-19 continues to affect the world and travel restrictions are in effect.
