Taiwan Travel Requirements

NHS tests are not recognized as an acceptable proof of COVID status. Only lab certificates that include the following elements are accepted:


1/ It must state on the certificate that the test is a nucleic acid test

2/ It must indicate following:

i/ the name,

ii/ date of birth or passport number of the traveler,

iii/ the virus name (COVID-19 or SARS-CoV-2),

iv/ testing method (PCR, Real-Time PCR, RT-PCR, NAA, NAT or Molecular Diagnostics), and

v/ the result (negative or undetectable).


It is important to note that for the Taiwanese,  an antibody serology test (IgG or IgM) is not a molecular biology nucleic acid test and thus, does not meet the requirements for a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test result.
