CORONAVIRUS/Visiting foreign nationals get another visa extensions over COVID-19
Taipei, Jan. 13 (CNA) Foreign nationals who entered Taiwan on or before March 21 and have been unable to return home because of COVID-19 can get a further 30-day extension of stay, the National Immigration Agency said Wednesday.
The extension will apply to foreign nationals who entered Taiwan visa-free or on a visitor's or landing visa on or before March 21 and have no record of overstaying, the agency said in a statement.
The government has previously announced automatic 30-day visa extensions on July 17, Aug. 14, Sept. 14, Oct. 15, Nov. 13, and Dec. 14 to keep from forcing foreign nationals to leave Taiwan as the COVID-19 pandemic continues and travel restrictions remain in place around the world.
Although the extension will be automatically registered on the agency's systems and does not require an application, visitors who would like formal documentation of the extension can request to have their passports stamped at the agency's service stations around the country, it said.
