2020-07-03 08:40

 

To avoid clusters of infection among foreign overstayers, the National Immigration Agency (NIA) has promoted the "Expanded Overstayers Voluntary Departure Program" from April 1 to June 30, adopting penalty relieves including no detention, no entry ban and a minimum amount of fine to encourage overstayers to turn themselves in.

 

Given that the 32nd coronavirus case was a missing migrant worker in this February, the NIA particularly promoted a three-month program to avoid potential clusters of infection. During the designated period of the program, a total of 7,617 foreigners were captured, 4,443 of whom turned themselves in, 2,075 were Vietnamese, and 1,519 were Indonesian. Among all of the foreigners, no one tested positive for Covid-19, showing the national disease control was successful.

 

National Immigration Agency chief Chiu Feng-kuang (邱豐光) stated that the country will actively promote relevant regulations on illegal employment or brokers to maintain the country's safety and social order.
