Home Quarantine Q&A
How to calculate the 10-day home quarantine? How many days should I book for a home quarantine hotel
Home quarantine isn't calculated from the date of arrival, but begins the day after the arrival in Taiwan, ends at midday on the 10th day after arrival, thus making the quarantine period a total of 11 days.
*The end date is indicated on the Home Quarantine Notice
For example: if you arrive at 2pm on 1 April, 2 April is counted as the first day of quarantine. You are released from quarantine at 00:00am on 12 April. When you book the quarantine hotel, make sure the check out date makes the quarantine period a total of 11 nights. If you leave quarantine before you may face criminal charges or a fine.For example: If you arrive in Taiwan on April 1, the check out date will be April 12.
If my family and I enter Taiwan together, can I undergo home quarantine with them in the same residence?
Family members/household members who arrive on the same day may choose to quarantine together in their home or a residence of their friends or family or they may stay in the same quarantine quarter depending on their willingness and room types of the quarantine hotel where they stay. However, due to the space of single rooms, it is not recommended that more than two people share a room.
