Taipei, March 21 (CNA) Taiwan will grant an automatic 30-day visa extension to foreign nationals who entered the country on or before March 21, reversing a policy announced just three days ago that would have forced people out once their visas expired.

All travelers who entered Taiwan on or before March 21, 2020 on a visitor visa or landing visa or through a visa-waiver program will be granted an automatic 30-day extension, with the exception of overstayers, the Bureau of Consular Affairs (BOCA) announced on its website.

It noted, however, that "these conditions are subject to change and may be adjusted as circumstances require."    [FULL  STORY]
