4 Currently, Taiwan allows 50,000 international arrivals per week.
5 All international arrivals will still have to be quarantined for three days, followed by four days of health self-management, which involves taking an antigen test.
7 Lo said that the measures would be further loosened on Oct. 13 for Taiwan to accept 150,000 international travelers weekly.
8 The quarantine for international arrivals then would be changed to only seven days of health self-management.
