The United States territory of Guam has announced its plan to allow short-term travellers from Taiwan to enter the island free of quarantine beginning July 24, according to Taiwan News.

In Guam, the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is waning and its pandemic restrictions are easing as business gets back to normal. The tourism reliant island is set to initially relax the social gathering rule, reopen schools and businesses on July 20, followed by border relaxation on July 24.

Those who plan to visit Guam for five days or less and are from listed “low-risk” countries will be exempt from quarantine as well as border testing, according to Guam Visitors Bureau. Taiwan is on the list of low-risk countries, so citizens will be able to benefit from the new policy.

Known for its breath-taking beaches, wide variety of cuisines, and abundant shopping and entertainment facilities, Guam is a popular destination for Taiwanese travellers. However, Taiwan’s 14-day quarantine requirement remains in place for all arrivals.
