Palau announced Thursday (Oct. 21) that visitors from Taiwan will be allowed entry despite having received one COVID-19 shot.
Travelers from Taiwan, including Taiwanese citizens and foreign nationals with a resident certificate, will enjoy unrestricted travel to the island country in the western Pacific by presenting proof of a single-dose COVID inoculation. No quarantine is required for these individuals, according to the country’s Bureau of Tourism.
This is regardless of the type of vaccine they have been administered, as long as it is validated by the World Health Organization (WHO) or the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Pfizer-BioNTech, AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson, Moderna, Sinopharm, and Sinovac vaccines are among the approved vaccines.
Also accepted is Taiwan’s homegrown Medigen, which was added to the approved vaccine list on Oct. 7.
