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 December 23, travelers arriving in Taiwan from the UK must now quarantine in group quarantine facilities for 14 days after entry, and be tested for COVID-19 before completing the quarantine period. Flights to and from the UK are to be reduced by half, effective immediately.
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.

Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was very nice. What I like to say is the ramp and bus boarding in lax is awful also the site arranging the trip should give us right away the choice of seats .. For me that’s very important"

Cons: "I will go again"
Pros: "We were delayed coming out of LA. Arriving in Manila, we were in the tarmac for 30-40 minutes The crew has a habit of yelling out to passengers for them to remain seated instead of approaching them to ask them to remain seated ...AS OTHER AIRLINES DO. Very off putting and shocking."
Cons: "The crew can be nicer, more gracious. Hospitality is their trade. I observed that they have a habit of calling out in aloud voice to passengers to remain seated bothered us. It is embarrassing and comical to watch. Other airlines do not do that. The crew must go and talk to them politely."
Pros: "Great entertainment, pretty good food."
Cons: "Service was okay but nothing special."
Cons: "seats 26A and 27A are terrible seats. The seat divider is 4-5 inches wide and protrudes in to the footwell. When the passenger in the forward seat places his seat all of the way back. It is almost impossible for the person in these seats to get out to the aisle."
Cons: "The delay with boarding time caused me to almost miss my connecting flight in Taipei, where my checked bag was also delayed and did not check through concurrently with me."
Pros: "Good service and flight attendants. I paid extra for exit row seats and I'm glad I did on a flight this long (13+ hours). I think that probably made a huge difference (six feet tall). Boarding was extremely orderly."
Cons: "The seat smells like it was not clean. They did not serve snack between lunch and dinner. You need to get it at their station. We were really thirsty and a bit hungry..."
Cons: "rude people. yelling to passengers"
Pros: "I like the food and entertainment. But they should served drinks more often as possible rather than waiting for the customer to ask for it."

Water was still coming out from the suitcase when we reported about it to the Eva counter in HONG KONG AIRPORT. WE DID NOT KNOW HOW AND WHERE THE WATER CAME TO MY SUITCASE , FOR WE HAD NOT PUT ANY LIQUID IN OUR SUITCASE. BESIDES, THERE WERE OTHER TWO PASSENGER'S RAISED THE SAME PROBLEM to EVA WHILE WE WERE THERE IN THE AIRPORT OF HONG KONG. SHOULD EVA TAKES THE RESPONSIBILITY OF IT?"

Cons: "Since I traveled with my daughter (4yo), I got to board early from LAX to TPE but my second flight from TPE to BKK, I had to wait till they called my zone seat. I was holding my daughter at that point since they took away my stroller way earlier than the boarding time. I would like to ask for the same standard of parents traveling with children who are 6 or younger to board first so they can get settle and these patents are tiring from dealing with their children during the flight. They are extra tired than regular passengers."

Pros: "The cabin attendants were excellent in carrying iut their work and responsibilities. They were friendly too."
Cons: "I tried to check in online a day before the flight as per email advisory but most of the seats were blocked already and whatever seats left open were only a few and those were tbe ones in the middle or the ones that you need to pay additional. so I decided to check in at the airport but their staff didn’t help much. They still gave us seats away from each other even if I explained that we have some health issues that’s why we need to stay together."
Cons: "i had a surfboard bag that weighed 11lbs and my daughter had a surfboard bag that weighed 21 lbs and we are being charged $200 each both ways for a total charge of $800 round trip. This is an outragous fee for surfboard and other airlines specificly Alaskian Air, Quanties, and Virgin Australia have been letting us travel with surfboard bags for free that weight 3 times that much. I will never take Cathay Pacific again as we paid more for these flights because we had heard they do not charge for surfboard and they have great service. I had a total of $1200 fspending money for food and transportation for my trip to Bali. That leaves me with $400. Never again will I travel with Cathay Pacific and I will be spreading the word through social Media! Not a Happy Customer!!!"

Pros: "The entertainment is in regards to the movie choices that I had. I wish my screen was a little bigger."
Cons: "My flight from Los Angeles to Hong Kong was cancelled due to a problem with the plane. I stood in line for 2 and a half hours at the airport only to have them tell me this. There was not visible sense of urgency on part of the staff at Cathay Pacific and they did not seem to have a contingency plan to deal with such a situation. I especially felt sorry for some of the elderly people who were also in line all that time with noting to drink and no place to sit."

Cons: "food was horrible. Please improve the quality and quantity."

BTW I'm a Platinium member of American Airlines, what thy should at least give a little attention since I fly every month."

Cons: "Water and soft drink didn't serve very often"
Cons: "Seat back was broken and could not recline at all during a 13+ hour flight."

Pros: "Overall concern about being on time!"
Cons: "Service could be a bit more friendly and helpful."
Pros: "The air steward/stewardesses were very polite and their service made the flight very pleasant. Kudos to the team on board. For everything that was negative about our flight, the onboard crew do live up to Cathay's reputation of quality service."
Cons: "A passenger was coughing severely throughout our 12-hour flight. Albeit he had a mask, but his poor health made us worry as we were in confined space together for an extended period of time. In addition, I do not think he had changed his mask which a surgical has a useful lifespan of approximately 3-5 hours with his level of intensive use. The toilet cleanliness was poorly maintained throughout the flight. It could have been cleaned more often. The onboard entertainment was very dated. New movies would be better appreciated. Now comparing you to SQ, but you faired worse than PAL which was a disappointment to us. We had expected you to perform better. The uniform design looks dated. It looked like something from the 1980s. It's time to keep up with the times."
Cons: "Ran out of several food and beverage options."
