The first group of seven migrant workers from Indonesia arrived in Taiwan on Wednesday after an entry ban was lifted last week.
A China Airlines flight CI-76 carrying four of the Indonesian workers landed at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport at 8:48 p.m., with three others arriving at 8:57 p.m. on EVA Air flight BR-238.
One of those arriving said through a translator that she was happy to be able to work in Taiwan following the end of the ban, which was implemented over a year ago.
The seven migrant workers were greeted by staff from the Ministry of Labor (MOL) before being briefed on COVID-19 quarantine procedures and related measures in Taiwan.
After their entry, the newly arrived migrant workers took a rapid test for COVID-19, and were then transported to collective facilities where they will undergo a 14-day quarantine, airport authorities said.
If any of the workers display any COVID-19-related symptoms, it will be arranged for them to take a second COVID-19 test and observe related quarantine measures.
