The past year has changed our world irrevocably. It has been a period of great loss and uncertainty, and our thoughts go out to anyone affected by COVID-19. We will keep this page updated with the latest travel information as we receive it and have updated our booking conditions to give you peace of mind when you do feel comfortable traveling internationally again.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We’re using this time to update our Health and Safety policies and are following the guidelines for travel as outlined by the US State Department. You can also subscribe for our newsletter or find us on Facebook to be the first to hear when entry requirements change.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Taiwan soon and send our best wishes to you and all of your loved ones.

Taiwan Travel Advisory and Restrictions
Last Updated: May 10th, 2021
Entry to Taiwan
From May 4th, 2021, all non-Taiwan residents are prohibited from entering Taiwan.
Requirements for Entry
Those eligible for entry must present their valid visa on arrival plus a certificate showing a negative result for COVID-19 issued no more than 72 hours prior to departure.
All persons must undergo a 14-day quarantine in a designated hotel or abide by the “one person per residence requirement” for self-isolation at home.
Our Relaxed Booking Conditions
Fully Transferrable Planning Fees
All of our private journeys are fully customized. This means that after you get in touch, we’ll arrange a time for you and one of our travel consultants to chat and for them to fully understand what you’re looking for from a Life of Taiwan journey.
Once you’re both sure that we fully understand your needs, we’ll ask you to pay a USD$500 non-refundable planning fee so our team can start customizing your perfect trip. Your dedicated travel consultant will then work with you until we’ve created your dream Taiwan adventure.
We understand that travel in a post-COVID world is still uncertain and so, if you need to postpone your journey for any reason, all planning fees paid in 2021 for a 2022 journey can be transferred to another date completely free of charge.
We’ve Eliminated Deposits
If there are any non-refundable bookings we need to make on your behalf, we’ll tell you upfront. If there aren’t, we won’t ask you to pay a deposit.
Your balance payment will be due just 30 days before you travel. If travel restrictions stop you from traveling after this time, we’ll do our best to recover any costs.
