Idk but they definitely keeping an eye on sg situation. Go their cdc website, we got mentioned again today for the casino case. They ask anyone been to casino with symptoms to quarantine n see doctor

i think this shows SG shares info with Taiwan, which would give taiwan confidence that SG is managing the situation well. no hiding of information.

my two cents.

later land into taoyuan airport, they direct you to their quarantine rooms to rest for 14 days ... your holiday mood no more already ...
Exact same concerns.....

i def do not hope for taiwan to impose travel ban on SG. i am waiting for this trip for so damn long.

But at our current situation now,i don't feel optimistic.

every now and then new cases come up.

Ok having said that, i am going to find a backup plan IF taiwan were to travel ban on sg
Ya, gotta think of backup plan. haha. Most probably try to postpone if possible. But our airline is scoot. Most probably is can't get back the money liao unless Taiwan travel ban sg. Some hotels we booked on Agoda already don't allow refund, but they allow change date though. Some is totally don't entertain any changes and unrefundable. But Oh well...

i think this shows SG shares info with Taiwan, which would give taiwan confidence that SG is managing the situation well. no hiding of information.

my two cents.
Hopefully~

Please lah. The flight duration between Singapore and Taipei is around 4 hours 40 mins. If really ban, they won't allow you to board. Airlines will be among the first to know of the ban. If not, just fly back to Singapore lah. What quarantine in Taiwan. Duh. You think the Taiwan government so rich and generous to pay for the quarantine? No where else to spend their money meh? Put you back on the flight back to Singapore is much more cost effective.

Don't spread fear. Exercise some common sense.

You know Philippines suddenly ban Taiwan from entering while the flight already departed? Then kana treated like criminal at the airport and send back how you feel??? If this happen in Taiwan, tourists for sure will not be allow to enter but if you are work permit holder or what you will need to be home quarantine for 14days.

yea, that is a very suay and sad case man. Saw the agony of the taiwanese tourists stranded there. Since most airlines stop all flights due to that travel ban, the ticket price of available last flight back to taiwan surged by 3 times or something. Forgot what the tourists mentioned in the video. Jin Cham man..

The duration between Taiwan and Philippines is 1 hour ++ so if what you said is true, why would that happened?

They will definitely not put you on quarantine like you said, but will just simply reject your entry and you are going on the next flight out.

It did happen to someone who travelled to USA and then the immigration reject entry, the person just get onto next flight back.

IT DOES HAPPEN!
