3/21/2020 Update: Thank you for praying! They just announced: “Automatic 30-day extension for foreigners entering Taiwan on or before March 21 with visa waiver, visitor visa, or landing visa (no application is required) (overstayers excepted)” which means we now have until June 14, 2020! Lord willing, the rules will change by then! The Lord is answering prayers and keep praying!
Before today, Taiwan allowed American citizens to enter Taiwan and stay for 90 days at a time. Thus, this is what our family has been doing as we have been in the process of applying for our official paperwork. But as of today, Taiwan is barring entry of “foreign nationals” to combat the virus. This includes American citizens. The last time we entered Taiwan was on February 15, 2020 and we get a 90 day stay from that date before we have to make another visa run out of the country. But with this new regulation once we leave the country, we will not be allowed to re-enter.
Thus, if things don’t change by May 15, 2020 we won’t have a choice but to return to the USA until the ban is lifted. Obviously this in not what we are wanting or hoping for, but we know all is in the Lord’s hands.
Pray for wisdom in the days ahead. I know everyone is dealing with many unexpected things at this moment. I just want to be transparent about our situation and ask for your prayers when you think of us.
