- Three days before entering the training center, individuals should go to a designated agency approved by the CECC for a PCR test, and the test result must be negative.
- Before entering Taiwan, it is best for migrant workers to be fully vaccinated with the COVID-19 vaccines included in the World Health Organization (WHO) emergency use list, or the COVID-19 vaccines authorized by the Ministry of Health and Welfare for emergency use.
- Migrant workers should adopt the 7-day self-management of health before boarding and perform a PCR test again 72 hours before boarding and entering Taiwan. The test result must be negative.

Epidemic prevention measures for migrant workers after entering Taiwan:
Migrant workers must take a PCR test, and then proceed to undergo a 14-day collective quarantine and 7-day self-management of health after entering Taiwan.
Before the end of the 14-day quarantine, individuals need to have another PCR test again, and follow the 7-day self-management of health and continue to live in the collective quarantine venues. While having the self-management of health, one must go through a rapid test and follow the entry and exit regulations of the collective quarantine venues.
In addition, migrant workers are theoretically not allowed to go out during the period of self-management of health. They can only go out for medical treatment or emergency situations. Contact tracing QR code scanning is adopted, and a specialized person must be responsible for picking up and accompanying them throughout the process.
