Taiwan has begun to reopen its borders to foreign nationals, provided they are traveling for reasons other than study, tourism or to visit friends. All visa waivers have been suspended, so travelers must apply for a special entry permit with a Taiwan representative office overseas before traveling.
Travelers who already hold a valid Alien Resident Certificate (ARC) or Alien Permanent Resident Certificate (APRC) do not require a visa to enter Taiwan.
Starting from December 1, until February 28, all travelers, including transit passengers, regardless of nationality and travel purpose must present a medical certificate with a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test result issued within 72 hours prior to departure to Taiwan.
Foreign nationals must have a medical certificate in English with a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test result issued within 72 hours prior to departure to Taiwan.
Travelers must complete and submit a "Quarantine System for Entry Form" before departure.
The following visitors may be exempted from negative COVID-19 test: personnel on diplomatic or official business, migrant workers, students, those coming to Taiwan for emergency situations, and crewmembers on vessels arriving in Taiwan.
Passengers arriving from the Philippines are subject to medical screening on arrival.
Travelers are subject to a 14-day home quarantine.
From November 9, all travelers arriving into Taiwan must declare if they have had COVID-19 symptoms in the last 14 days. If they report symptoms, they are subject to PCR test at the airport or a hospital immediately upon arrival. If they test negative, they must have a second test after 24 hours. They are subject to quarantine at a designated quarantine facility while awaiting for both results. If they receive two negative results, they will be able to leave the quarantine facility and carry out the 14-day self-isolation at home or in a designated quarantine hotel. A positive test will mean hospitalization.
During the quarantine period, the individual is to stay home (or at the designated location) and may not use public transportation or leave Taiwan. Travelers may be asked to install a local SIM card if they do not already have one. Mobile phone location monitoring will be used as part of the quarantine management process by local authorities. Short-term business travelers may apply for a shortened period of home quarantine.
Foreign passengers, including people from Hong Kong and Macau, are now allowed to transit through Taoyuan International Airport. Holders of People’s Republic of China (PRC) passports will not be permitted to transit in Taiwan. Those transiting will need to board connecting flights of the same airline company they fly in on. Transits must last less than 8 hours. Transit passengers who need to wait for more than one hour will remain separate from other passengers and stay in a separate area.

Cons: "The flight out of RNO early in the morning was chaotic. One of the kiosks was down and the line to self-check was long and moved very slowly because there was only one agent behind the self-check baggage drop. She did well keeping up but there was a long line of unhappy customers due to the long wait. No snack was offered but I did get a glass of water. Not enough overhead storage for the carry-on bags because passengers get the luggage check tag but brought the carry-on onboard anyway."
Cons: "Wider seating"

Pros: "I am handicapped so I was concerned about my walker and ability to use stairs etc. The crew on the plant and boarding area couldn’t have been more helpful. I was impressed by the comfortable seats and friendly stewardesses. After the plane landed the first officer went to get my walker so I didn’t have to wait."
Pros: "Wasn't full, plenty of room. Free booze offered!"
Cons: "Delayed, crew didn't help couple to calm their children and restore morale"
Cons: "Took off 40 min late without explanation"
Pros: "It was an early flight and it was very quick I experienced some difficulty during the flight with hypoglycemia, the male flight attendant was not as attentive to my needs as the lady was who recognized the potential disaster that could have occurred and aided me while following up at the end of the flight."
Cons: "Uncomfortable, no food or drinks were served, no entertainment for the duration of the flight."
Pros: "Amenities were about on par with other international airlines. The entertainment console was wonderful. The trip was more quickly than expected."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. We were there 2.5 hours before our flight and had to rush to make it on time due to the awful lines for the checking our bags and general disorganization of American Airlines. The staff on the plane missed our row when offering drinks near the end of the flight and were not careful about bumping elbows and shoulders as they frequented the aisle. Also couldn't sit by my family which was a huge bummer."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "No power outlets our video screens at seats. No food served on 4 hour flight."
Pros: "The amount of things to keep you entertained for the long flight"
Cons: "I had to have my seat up the entire route so that made a very uncomfortable flight was never able to really rest"
Cons: "A passenger caused a delay in security, and as I'm rushing for the gate, the agent closed the door and told me I couldn't board. She then marked me as a no-show, while she was standing right next front of her. I had to spend the next 4 hrs on the phone, trying to get my tickets sorted out. Then, upon arriving at Heathrow,... No luggage. They told me it was still in Chicago. Upon finally receiving my bags, I find them full of sawdust and sand, and several items damaged. I will NEVER fly American Airlines again, and I will highly recommend to my friends and family to avoid them like them plague. Horrible service! Nothing but a run-around and not once did the agents apologise, even after admitting that my problems on this journey were due to a mistake made by one of their agents."
Pros: "Flight depart on time, with possible 5 minute delay. No problem at all."
Pros: "Nice entertainment options."
Cons: "No free WiFi for message."
Pros: "Everything worked the way it was supposed to. Bag transfer through customs and transfer to domestic was easy."
Cons: "Snacks and food in general on US operated airlines is generally sad. American Airlines should learn from Qantas about food quality and service."
Pros: "The professionalism from the entire crew. Very smooth flight. The in-flight meal was very good ."
Cons: "Even dow we were late departing Santiago Chile, we made it to Dallas in good time."
Pros: "I took American's first direct flight between Philadelphia and San Antonio. It was a nice plane, good service, and amenities for a cost. Love that the plane had plugs!"

Cons: "Checking my bag when there was plenty of overhead cabin space"
Pros: "The boarding process was quick and efficient."
Cons: "This plane did not feature TV at your seat. Only the overhead TV"
Pros: "The planes were on time. On our way down to Cozumel. The pilot let me 4-year-old son see the cockpit. Which was AWESOME, they were great As well as the flight crew on the way down. The trip down was terrific, If AA had this level of service all the time I would fly with them all the time."
Cons: "The trip home was more of what i expected from AA. The check-in process was slow and i was overcharged for my bike, On the way down it was $25 the same price as previous AA flights, On other airlines, it also just counts as a piece of luggage. On the way home i was charged $150 oversized luggage, yet it was <50 lbs and within the size limits. The flight crew was not overall friendly. Very business like and not warm at all. If they were a restaurant i would not be returning. The locks on my bike case were both broken off. the case was not locked. Nor was this done by TSA as they would have left a note as they have previously done."
Cons: "Kiosk sign-in tried to sell several upgrades prior to issuing boarding pass. Very irritating! Seating was very cramped"
Pros: "Boarding process, information flow, crew hospitality was excellent and professional."
Cons: "Food was very basic and bland. Drink choices were fine."

Cons: "It took a long time before they offered beverages, we were in the air for more than 1.5 hours before they came by to offer drinks"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "For price paid, service and treatment not comensurate expense. Boarding system seems arbitrary to seat booked. Had window seat but middle and aisle seat boarded first...doesn't make sense."
Pros: "The first leg of trip had a newer aircraft......potentially due to the "mechanical delay" that started the fiasco."
Cons: "I don't usually do reviews, but this experience has prompted me too. I usually pick American over other airlines even if the price is slightly higher but after this last fiasco I doubt I will fly with them again. From the start of the trip there was a delay. I was told that I would have to stay in a hotel in Charlotte because I would miss my connecting flight. I agreed and waited for my flight that was nearly 2 hours late. I arrived in Charlotte and retrieved my bag as instructed and went to the counter. The lady then stated that it was probably best if I tried to get on the last remaining flight even though it showed sold out because "there have been delays all day and plenty of people have been missing their connecting flights". So I rechecked my bag and headed to the game. This flight was delayed, as it was the last for the night, so that all the connecting flights could be made. Okay, that is fair enough....even though I didn't get to board and now I no longer had my bag as this is now on the plane. 30 minutes after the plane left I finally get my voucher for motel along with a $12 voucher for food that can only be used in the terminal restaurants......which are now closed for the night. After 30 minutes of trying to contact the hotel for shuttle information I was advised that they were no longer taking airline vouchers. I , again, approached the ticket counter and I was advised that I "would just have to wait because there are no rooms in the system at this time." And none of this instruction seemed professional or accommodating. After another hour I was approached that now there are no other options in their system for accommodations and I would have to pursue options on my own. So......the higher priced one way ticket just became $100 more at no fault of my own."
Pros: "Better than I thought it would be."
Pros: "Nice pilot, one of the flight attendants were nice. The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "This airline always has delays! There is no in-flight entertainment (music, tv, movies, etc.); thus, the flight was terribly boring! Also, only peanuts and a small cup of soda was offered to us. Other airlines give cookies and biscotti! The seats don't recline and they need more legroom. The majority of the airline crew largely ignored us and showed mediocre customer service."
Pros: "Great crew is what made the short flight awesome!"
Cons: "Baggage claim took extremely long time. It took a while before the baggage crew even became aware of situation."
Pros: "Very friendly. Quick & semi efficient."
Cons: "Need bigger chairs for bigger people."

Cons: "slimline seats on a 12+ hour international flight are torture"
Cons: "The lady at the boarding gate at newark airport was extremely unpolite and with a very law service attitude"

Cons: "United's In-flight entertainment did not work."

Cons: "That I could only have one carry on an my purse was considered two, really and it was a small purse."
Cons: "Rude flight attendant. White, old, male, with half shaved head. Uncomfortable seats. Awful food"
Cons: "For a long flight, it's inexcusable to have no wifi working for both my flights. I'm very dissapointed as this was very uncomfortable to fly internationally. While they did play a movie on the communal screen, was hard to see from my seat. Would of much rather paid more to fly with a nicer service"

Cons: "cramped seating"

Pros: "All perfect! Amazing how much nicer flight staff was!!"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Why do all the employees at United try to make you feel like your "putting them out" whenever you ask them anything. I have never experienced how an entire company can walk around with a chip on their shoulder. No life-threatening we are done."

Pros: "Almost didn't make my connection."
Cons: "Wifi didn't work"
Pros: "Everyone was beyond helpful and wonderfully nice."
Cons: "A 4 hour flight & we got a repulsive wafer cookie and one, just one drink. No one ever came around to offer another beverage. The flight attendants were rude & spent the majority of the flight hanging out in the back gossiping."
Pros: "The flight attendants are super duper nice. Like so nice. Too nice."
Cons: "The chairs will make your butt go numb after awhile. It's inevitable. The snacks are god awful packaged poison BUT the beverage selection is vast which it pretty dope."
Cons: "The seats on the 737 are uncomfortable."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding, friendly staff, On time/early to arrival"
Cons: "Not a lot of space for passengers- even someone small like me at 5'2 and 120 lbs. Flight was also a bit turbulent"
Pros: "I like the many options that I had to choose from for my filghts"
Cons: "That I could get my seat assignment when I place the reservation"
Cons: "No snacks...free"
Pros: "Helpful crew"
Pros: "The United staff I interacted with were some of the friendliest people I'd worked with all day."
Cons: "Our first flight was delayed, which meant we'd miss our connecting flight. We were moved to a flight that would leave us in the airport for 8 hours. I called and someone got my onto an earlier flight, but when we showed up at the gate, we found out she hadn't finished the transaction and now there weren't enough seats for us. We were supposed to land in RIC by 2, but by the time we got a flight (which was again delayed), it was almost 10pm. The only helpful person I dealt with was John, who took my call to get us on another flight."
Cons: "The flight from Newark was delayed and caused me to miss my flight from SFO to TPE. The gate staff on arrival did nothing to help ensure that I would make the flight. I chose United because i expected reliable service, instead I got the worst ever experience with an airline."
Pros: "Our flight was on time. Economy plus seats were roomy. Also, we had gate checked car seats and the pilots waited to ensure that they were delivered before de planing."
Cons: "My only complaint was that there was no food for sale. We had 2 hungry kids and we only got some free pretzels and a drink. It would have been nice if there was a snacks to purchase."
Pros: "View out the window"
Cons: "Delayed at Chicago for 8 hours before they canceled the flight. It was beautiful & Sunny in both Chicago (depart) & Omaha (arrive) all day. The flight was most likely canceled because of an incoming flight that never arrived. Stayed at hotel on my own dime after wasting an entire day. Completely unacceptable and will never use airline for this route again."
Pros: "Smooth boarding. Friendly crew. Got us there on time, despite a late start That included a gate change."
Cons: "Was asked to check my carry on bag, because the flight was full. Meaning they sold the seat I purchased for my wife (who was unable to make the flight). I did so, but when I looked in the overhead bin after the flight, it was empty. When we arrived in Denver, I waited at the baggage carousel, watched everyone pick up there bags, until there were only 5 or 6 bags going around. I then went to a counter behind the carousel and asked about my bag. I was only then told that my bag had been there the whole time I was waiting."
Pros: "The crew members were friendly and efficient."
Pros: "People were very nice and friendly"
Cons: "Flight was rough & delayed"
Pros: "I always appreciate a nice smooth landing."
Cons: "The caramel wafer served with the beverage in flight."
Pros: "Just noticed survey on my flight from Omaha to Chicago. Sadly I woke up to find that that flight was cancelled and I had to reschedule and flown to Denver instead."
Cons: "The stewardess wasn't the least bit helpful. I did not see any friendliness on her part to anyway. It was like she had to do the job but didn't like being there. So very weird. My original flight to Milwaukee with stop in Chicago was cancelled. This was a flight that took me to Denver and then Milwaukee. Therefore cold for over two hours. Not a good experience with United."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The older female attendant was extremely rude . Noted her inability to communicate with an obvious mentally challenge teenager. This attenders needs to retire she appears to be very tired of her job giving United a very poor image."
Pros: "I did not like anything. Please people don't book through kayak. Scam website"
Cons: "Flight delayed. Stayed at airport for more than 2 hours. Baggage lost."
Pros: "Even though we left almost 30 minutes behind schedule on a hour and a half flight, the pilot made up the time in the air and we touched down 2 minutes ahead of our original time. I know a bunch of people had connecting flights and we're very happy."
Cons: "Departure was delayed for unknown reason, first flight of the day and the plane was sitting at the gate 2 hours prior to it's scheduled departure time."
Pros: "All the staff working for United Airlines are very professional and caring. Wifi onboard was fantastic!!"
Pros: "It was ok"
Cons: "Not being in first class"
Pros: "Hassle free booking(no hidden fees) comfortable seats which for me being 6foot6 isn't always the case. And the free selection on the united airlines app was an awesome bonus"
Pros: "The staff was nice"
Cons: "There isn't anything I would say that I didn't like. I just would have to say it was overall a good experience"
Pros: "You can carry up to 16kg in your carry on. That's great."
Cons: "Food was below average and only twice during a 14 hours flight. Plus, no free snack available... you have to pay. I will think twice about travelling with United for an international flight."
Pros: "Movies were ok."
Cons: "Openly rude, almost argumentative staff. I was afraid to talk back because the last thing I want is any accusation of bad behavior on an airplane. But if this were a restaurant, the customers would get up and leave without eating. I've never had this experience on China Airlines or Japan Air. I will never use UA again."
Pros: "The crew spoke Mandarin and were very friendly. The food has definitely improved since the last time I flew this segment. I think UA is feeling the competition from the Asian airlines and improving their services to better compete. The seats are definitely more comfortable than the domestic flights. It was a comfortable flight and we landed right on time."
Cons: "The seats are still smaller than some of the Asian competition."
Pros: "The plane was roomy and comfortable"
