First in Asia: quarantine-free ‘travel bubble’ launched between Taiwan and Palau

Subscribe to our YouTube channel for free here:

Taiwan and Palau kicked off Asia’s first quarantine-free “travel bubble” on April 1, 2021. The first group of around 100 tourists from Taiwan boarded a Boeing 737-800 at Taipei’s Taoyuan International Airport before setting off for the tourism-dependent Micronesian island archipelago. Among the passengers was Palau President Surangel Whipps Jnr, who had come to Taiwan to help launch the scheme. While the travellers will not need to go into quarantine, precautionary measures will remain in place to prevent the spread of Covid-19. Passengers must present proof of a negative coronavirus test before boarding flights, and they have to travel in groups with limited direct contact with local people while they are abroad.

    中国南方地方は、4箇所に遮断され、再スタートしました。 香港は、英国が援助、台湾は、米国援助、南方中国は、ロシア中心に、欧米英ユダ諸国が、援助、ヴィトナムは、米国が援助です。 全知全能成る、偉大な、神の御指示は、5大民族の統合は、永久禁止です。今年から、自給自足生活、援助は全面禁止です。ご理解ご了承お願い申し上げます。

Short name TAIWAN, PROVINCE OF CHINA. taiwan is included as a subdivision of China because of its political status within the United Nations, as, even though it is de facto under the jurisdiction of the Republic of China instead of the People's Republic of China, the United Nations does not recognize the Republic of China and considers taiwan as part of China.

    It is ironic that they couldn't have much contact with local people there but the main point of traveling to the islands is to have contact with the local people since the major point of traveling is to learn more about the local culture.

    Soon it is Singapore-Hong Kong and Singapore-Taiwan. Apparently they are in talks for travel bubbles from Singapore to Hong Kong and Taiwan separately.

    Taiwan can’t find western pharmaceutical company willing to sell vaccine to Taiwan and don’t want Chinese vaccine, so only got about 100k AZ vaccines from Korea and people are not comfortable with Az so only less than 10k frontline medical personnel received the first shots thus far. In addition, covid test in Taiwan is not covered by insurance, each test costs over $200 US dollars. Because Taiwanese covid testing rate is low and no lockdown, therefore infection rate is basically unknown and majority are not vaccinated. The US ambassador quietly joined this taiwan visit, so it’s easy to understand the political reason behind why any country will take the risk opening to Taiwanese.

    How will the Wuhan virus pandemic shake up the world? NOT through the virus, but through FEAR PROPAGANDA!

    What is the strongest protection and solution against the virus? STRONG body immune and STOP producing and STOP watch the propaganda news fear about the virus!

    NO need for vaccines, lockdown and restrictions!

    This serves as a reminder that the entire world is gradually overcoming the pandemic. We still have a long way to go, but with the introduction of vaccines, we are surely moving towards the ultimate goal of defeating the pandemic.

    Taiwanese 🇹🇼 are enjoying freedom and prosperity
    – while more than half of 1.4B Chinese 🇨🇳 are still living under poverty, without clean water or toilets.
    Chinese people want to be Taiwanese.

    In human migration history, Taiwan is the springboard of Polynesian peoples like Palau who originated from southern China and travelled far and wide into the vast Pacific.
