Staying healthy in Taiwan: Here’s what you need to know

Healthcare facilities and standards in Taiwan can vary significantly depending on the location and the type of facility. Here's what travelers should know.

Make sure to stay updated on routine vaccines

  • Ensure routine vaccines, such as influenza, measles-mumps-rubella (MMR), varicella, and polio, are up to date.

  • Vaccinations for hepatitis A and typhoid are also recommended due to food and water risks.

  • Keep updated with Taiwan's COVID-19 requirements, such as quarantine, testing, or vaccine certificates, through your airline or the Taiwanese government website.

Medical facilities

  • Taiwan boasts high-quality healthcare facilities, particularly in major cities. Hospitals are well-equipped and most doctors speak English.

  • Pharmacies are widely available, and many drugs that require prescriptions in other countries are available over the counter.

  • Dental care in Taiwan is of high quality and more affordable than in many Western countries.

  • Traditional Chinese medicine is widely practiced and available alongside conventional medicine, but make sure to go to a reputable provider.

Health insurance

We’d always recommend taking out health insurance before you travel anywhere from any destination.

Contact your insurance provider before traveling to make sure you have the right level of coverage.

Other things to consider:

  • Trip cancellation, delay, and interruption benefits.

  • Medical expenses and medical evacuation benefits.

  • Baggage coverage.

Things to be aware of when visiting Taiwan

Keep an extra eye on the following to keep healthy and safe during your trip to Taiwan:

1. Air quality: Urban areas may have poor air quality, so those with respiratory issues should take necessary precautions.

2. Mosquito-borne illnesses: Be cautious of mosquito-borne diseases like dengue fever, especially in urban and residential areas. Use insect repellent and wear long-sleeved clothing.

3. Natural disasters: Taiwan is located in a seismically active zone, so earthquakes are a common occurrence. Taiwan also experiences typhoons, especially between July and October. Familiarize yourself with safety procedures in case of a natural disaster.

Medication for personal use

Follow these tips to bring into Taiwan some over-the-counter medicines:

  • Declare all medications: Report all medication for personal use to customs authorities.

  • Original packaging: Always keep medicines in their original containers and in transparent bags in your hand luggage.

  • Prescription or doctor's letter: Present the medical prescription issued by your doctor or other competent authority, in English.
